Please see https://github.com/opengeospatial/geopackage/pull/325 for our
resolution to this issue. In summary, the default is pixel-is-area. If you
want to go your own way, you're on your own but no one is going to stop
you. I believe it is the best we could do given the limited progress made
by OGC in this area.
