The SRS import from URL is currently only enable for http:// URL, not https:// 
. So gdalsrsinfo tries after to open the URL as a GDAL/OGR dataset, and this 
ends up in the GeoJSONSeq driver that manages to open the garbage it gets 
(HTML content) due to its resilient parsing, and thus it reports WGS84 as SRS. 
I've just modified it to error out when no features are detected.
