[netCDFJava #RIZ-451320]: why can't this be read as a grid

Hi Don,

The use of "grid_latitude" and "grid_longitude" standard names indicates a 
rotated pole grid mapping (defined in Appendix F: "Grid Mappings" section [1] 
of the CF spec). But lat and lon have the wrong units for a rotated pole grid 
(they should be "degrees") and a rotated pole grid mapping is not defined. 
(Here's the definition for "grid_latitude" [2] from the CF standard name table 

Was the original dataset on a rotated pole grid?


[1] http://cfconventions.org/1.6.html#appendix-grid-mappings

[2] "Latitude is positive northward; its units of degree_north (or equivalent) 
indicate this explicitly. In a latitude-longitude system defined with respect 
to a rotated North Pole, the standard name of grid_latitude should be used 
instead of latitude. Grid latitude is positive in the grid-northward direction, 
but its units should be plain degree."
