[Gdal-dev] Georeferencing netCDF files

I don't understand what is the meaning of the "Georeferencing" on the
GDAL Raster Formats,
in particular for the case of netCDF files (more interested in those
because I'm dealing with them now)
In that table Georeferencing = yes for netCDF, but if I convert a
geottif to netCDF the referencing
information is not copied into the netCDF file.
However, sometime ago someone send me an ArcGIS generated file that has
(printed by ncdump but not reported by gdalinfo)
I had just nearly finished a code where I have added the option to write
an attribute named
srsWKT to serve exactly the same purpose.
The reason I'm addressing this issue here is to ask if there is interest
in future support for recognizing a georeferencing
WKT string within netCDF files. And if yes what would be an appropriate
I thought in srsWKT for obvious reasons but I'm open to suggestions.
