> The OGP organization, which is the maintainer of EPSG database, is now known as IOGP
(International Association of Oil & Gas Producers). We should rename at least in the source
code.
> We need to deprecate the {{Citations.OGP}} constant. But maybe we should not provide
a {{Citations.IOGP}} replacement, since experience suggests that there is confusion about
whether we need to use {{Citations.OGP}} or {{Citations.EPSG}} in source code. Since Apache
SIS refers to IOGP only in the context of EPSG database, we should probably not provide any
replacement, and keep only the current {{Citations.EPSG}} constant. This would remove a source
of confusion.
> Whether we should also rename "OGP" to "IOGP" in XML documents is still an open question.
The http://epsg-registry.org site is still reporting "OGP" in their GML exports.
