New Coverage I/O framework

                 Key: GEOTK-51
                 URL: http://jira.geotoolkit.org/browse/GEOTK-51
             Project: Geotoolkit
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Coverage
    Affects Versions: 3.04, 3.05
            Reporter: Martin Desruisseaux
            Assignee: Martin Desruisseaux
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 3.06

This is the parent task for the various parts of the new Coverage I/O framework. The goals for this framework are:

* Make as much geographic metadata as possible available through {{javax.imageio.metadata.IIOMetadata}}.
* Define an {{IIOMetadataFormat}} as close as possible to ISO 19115-2 and ISO 19129 standards.
* Close integration with {{org.opengis.metadata}} for easy integration with MD-Web and similar projects.
* Allow visual exploration of metadata for making easier to check correctness.

This I/O framework should delegate as much decoding work as possible on the Image I/O layer. The Coverage I/O layer (which is on top of the Image I/O layer) should not have any decoding work left. A single {{CoverageReader}} instance should be able to rule all possible {{ImageReader}} (assuming they are compliant with the {{IIOMetadataFormat}} we define).
