I'm concerned that requiring users to set an environment variable for
conformance will extend the period of transition from 2008 to RFC GeoJSON.
I honestly don't know that introducing a new format name ("geo+json"
instead of "GeoJSON") would be better, but I think it could be better:
`ogr2ogr -f geo+json` appears more portable (to, i.e., Windows) than
`RFCxxxx_GEOJSON=TRUE ogr2ogr -f GeoJSON`.
