Also, found the following in the Filter 1.1 specification, which seems
pretty clear to me:

*if the literal geometry SRS is unspecified, then the literal geometry SRS
shall be*
*interpreted to be equivalent to the <DefaultSRS> value of the queried
feature type.*

So, both Deegree and GeoServer declare a DefaultSRS in lat/lon order, it
follows that the
BBOX parameter in the GEtFeature request should be interpreted in lat/lon
order too,
in absence of an explicit srs stating otherwise, no?
