I think its worth pointing out is that according to the ogr docs,
gdal/ogr automatically re-projects the data in EPSG:4326.  I'm not
sure though if this is correct for all cases (in the past I always
make sure that my data in GRASS is in EPSG:4326 before converting to

KML has been accepted as an OGC standard, and is supported in one way
or another on the major GeoBrowsers. Note that KML by specification
uses only a single projection, EPSG:4326. All OGR KML output will be
presented in EPSG:4326. As such OGR will create layers in the correct
coordinate system and transform any geometries.
