Hi Jo,
    I agree, but It seems EPSG:3785 it's the official code for 
Spherical/Web Mercator so it should be the one on this updated spec.
 http://www.spatialreference.org/ref/epsg/3785/ , 
I'm looking for authority information on both codes you send, and I'm 
only getting emails and tile-cache related texts.
