[CITE-Forum] Axis order change breaks standard compatibility in WFS 1.1?

I was looking into a fix that is causing a failure and I'm not really
following the
reasoning behind the change:


Basically, it seems the reporter claims that if the SRS for the bbox in a
request is not specified,
then the default SRS should be used. No argument there, yet, both Deegree
and GeoServer capabilities responses state:


Which are lat/lon oriented. Yet, the reporter states the order of the axis
in the GET
request should be lon/lat oriented because that's the order
of urn:ogc:def:crs:OGC:1.3:CRS84"
And that's where I've completely lost the discussion... where in the world
is that CRS used
in the capabilities documents? The default srs is explicitly declared and
it's not CRS84.

Mind, if servers start implementing this "new" order most of the open
source clients out there will
start failing.
