They look allright. Thanks a lot for doing this!

Another issue: how is QGIS going to deal with deprecated EPSG SRSs?

Eg. EPSG 2171 is deprecated (it has a huge error) and 3120 is it's 
correct version. I think deprecated SRSs should be at least called 
different in the database. And put them into a separate group maybe so 
they don't get in the way?

According to PROJ 4.6 [1] there 201 deprecated SRSs in the EPSG database 

[1] grep -c deprecated /usr/share/proj/epsg
