@kcoyle - CRS is a key (though subtle) aspect of almost all spatial data ... which is most data. 

The string of coordinates is often 99% of the message in spatial data. The choice of CRS does not change the meaning or structure of this, only the actual numbers. So it is very similar to encoding/serialization or lang.  So if we agree with the proposition that 'lang' is an appropriate conneg facet, then it is hard to argue that CRS is not.
