#332: WKT geometry tag match and mismatch
  Reporter:  mloskot  |       Owner:  pramsey

Comment (by robe):

 Yes I'm aware of what I'm signing on to. I think for this whole OGC
 discussion -- its really more relevant what we do in output functions --
 and for inputs that we accept at a minimum what the OGC/MM requires given
 OGC/MM inputs.

 If we loosen our constraint a little -- it doesn't change prior behavior
 -- old apps work unchanged and behave exactly the same (except possibly
 they won't be whining so when given extended input or binary -- does
 anyone care? :)) .  So new apps can get away with passing in 3D or SRID or
 binary.  I don't see that as big enough issue to complicate our code over.
