Deegree is perhaps doing the same but I an not sure. I am not sure either if that it a good or bad thing to do.

Yeap not an easy topic...

TinyOWS should handle both:
- Reverse axis order if SRS is urn style
- Deal with east/northing upon informations founded
  in spatial_ref_sys table (AXIS["X",NORTH]] in srtext)

Could you give a try with r582 ?

Thanks (again) for the report !
