The abstract of this draft-butler-geojson-05 says:
> This document recommends a single coordinate reference system based
>    on WGS 84.  Other coordinate reference systems are not recommended.

I think the draft should be revised in this sense.

JSON/IP will reach a number of reference systems in wide use, 
non-WGS-84, which deserve direct use instead of through conversion.
