[Gdal-dev] ECW registration information not recognised in ESRI

That fixed it. Even though ArcGIS cannot tell the projection, putting that option in makes it look at the coordinate values, and recognises them as degrees.

I would open a bug, but I lost my password, and the password reminders don't seem to arrive.... Is that a problem on my side?

I would suggest trying to apply the coordinate system while you are
translating to ECW.  Adding '-a_srs WGS84' on the gdal_translate 
commandline should do the trick. 

A longer term solution on my part might be to apply a more 
appropriate dummy coordinate system instead of RAW if I am 
translating data with no coordinate system, but a meaningful
geotransform.  If you open a bug on this issue, I will look into it.
I may need Tom's advise on appropriate fallback coordinate systems
for coordinates that are apparently geodetic or projected.
