[gdal-dev] Call for discussion on RFC 63 : Sparse datasets improvements

I've updated the proposed implementation and the RFC, mostly on improving 
documentation based on the feedback of this thread.

One point I've had in mind, but didn't implement, is the possibility of having 
a GetDataCoverageStatus() at the dataset level, in addition to the raster band 
level. Could potentially be useful for pixel-interleaved datasets, but that 
can be added later if needed. But if you work with a pixel-interleaved 
GeoTIFF, you can emulate that by just calling GetDataCoverageStatus() on the 
first band.

If there are no further remarks, I'll call for a vote.

Best regards,
