The problem is that we can't currently write valid GeoTIFF files using these
projections. The netCDF-java library can handle data in these projections. The
TDS can serve the data over WCS just not if a GeoTIFF response is requested.
Updating the GeoTIFF code will require a bit of coding and some digging into
the GeoTIFF spec to figure out the appropriate tags. I will toss this over to
our GeoTIFF person, Yuan, to see what he thinks.
