Hi Luis & all,

I appreciate very much the high effort undertaken by the CITE team, it's just 
that there is nobody speaking up in WCS community to do the work of maintaining 
deprecated stuff - we have tried that earlier, and nobody spoke up. My group, 
for example, is more than loaded with WCS 2 extensions, implementation, and 
testing. Thanks to OWS-9 we have come to a level of completeness i functionality 
which allows to fully utilize the potential of coverage retrieval.

cheers,
Peter
