I guess you're right. In my version 1.2 spatial_ref_sys, the last 
"valid" EPSG entry is 32766.
Beyond that, I have entries that are related to ogr2ogr imports (mostly 
from shape files in UTM
projection). I actually use XSLT to upload KML, so don't have the 
longlat projection in my

So, yes, seems like an artifact.
