A fundamental question that has not been much discussed in this thread is : do
people really see interest in capturing georeferencing in popular image
formats like PNG or JPG ? My thinking is that it could be potentially usefull
in a few situations :
* when a WMS server returns a PNG or JPG.
* when generating tile caches for WMTS / TMS.

Just curious: what is this "geo-enable JP2K" thing and how is it different from
JP2 with GMLJP2 or GeoJP2 ? And why would need it to be different... ?

Already supported by GDAL, but kind of poor man georeferencing solution...

Not the simplest format to deal with, especially regarding georeferencing,
since you can have different historical ways of encoding georeferencing in
NITF. http://gdal.org/frmt_nitf.html mentions at least the IGEOLO, BLOCKA,
RPC00B, GeoSDE TRE... An advantage is that it brings some way of adding other
Geospatial professional services
