The proj4 projection library (starting with 4.5, I think) tries to

As far as I've seen, the netcdf-java library 4.2 has no code for
geodetic/geocentric conversion, so it follows the models.
i guess whats missing is a method to convert lat/lon on one ellipsoid to
lat/lon on another?
I don't even know if there is a way in newer CF-versions to set the
Datum, besides the ellipsoid?
I think the only possible thing you can do currently is to set the
