It's AddGeometryColumn() adding it.
Maybe we should provide an overloaded AddGeometryColumn with
no dimensions argument using a special value for the dimension
field (-1?) and omitting the constraint... 
What people thing about this ?

BTW, I think ogr2ogr should be consistent in inserted geometries dims,
at least to respect the parameter passed to AddGeometryColumn().
