Following on from this, based on some work that I've been doing with a test 
implementation (for JMPS), there is a question on what we should do for data 
that has SRS ID of 0 or -1. Conceptually we want to translate the data we have 
to show on the map we have (which is WGS84). What does 0 or -1 mean in this 

More concretely, what is the expected outcome of ST_Transform() if the input 
geometry has srs_id of 0 or -1? 

If we don't know (or can't explain why users should have data that doesn't 
represent any particular place on the earth), then it may not make sense for 
the NSG profile to allow it.
