Yeah it would be still possible to set/get extents - this is just
about which pieces of information would be canonical and which would
be derived. Currently the center and map-units-per-pixel are derived
from the extent and image size, the idea is to have that reversed:
extent to be derived from center, map-units-per-pixel and image size.
