Here is an interesting page to link to:

this control be passed onto the end user as an "advanced option" if needed.

You will also find that for the new URI format of SRS used by WMS1.3 or 
WFS1.1 we believe the EPSG table order, the codes are only ambiguous in 
their more common "AUTHORY:NUMBER" form...
