The best example of what I'm doing is trying to create a GeoTIFF version of a standard TIFF (ie create a full raster copy but with GeoTIFF tags for the projection and transform embedded), at the same time not limiting myself to only outputting to a GeoTIFF format but other geospatially capable formats as well (ie NITF, Erdas Imagine, ...) some of which only support the CreateCopy function.
