I'm not a lawyer, but I think that the current situation does not comply
with EPSG terms of use. Just reformatting a dataset in another format is
/"derivative work"/ - it does not free us from the copyrights that apply
on the original work. Taking a subset and reformatting is allowed by
§6v, but only/"provided that numeric equivalence is achieved"/ (§6vi).
This later condition is broken by changes in axis order and units of
measurement. Other conditions that we need to comply to are §6iv
(/"Ownership of the EPSG Dataset by IOGP must be acknowledged in any
publication or transmission"/) and §6i (/"You are obliged to inform
anyone to whom you provide the EPSG Facilities of these Terms of Use."/).
