The latest EPSG version is buggy (the one Frank used in PROJ 4.5 beta).
At least 4 CS definition have been removed in error. I have informed
Roger Lott of EPSG about it and he confirmed this will be fixed. He
also said that the fix is going to be committed soon, maybe even this
week. First they need to find the reason of the erroreous deletion of
valid definitions, though. Frank Warmerdam is also informed about the
issue and kept posted, so he should be able to sync his software once
the fix is commited. GRASS should follow.
