The other concern I have with treating this as a PROJECTION SRS type of
issue, which is what I assume Sean is getting at, is that currently the
projectionObj doesn't know anything about the raster coordinate system and
I am nervous about introducing this into the projectionObj in a way that
only really applies for layers.

However, this is just a general uneasiness, I haven't really thought it
through carefully.
