When put that way, I think the intention of the requirement is different on
two important points:

   1. We don't ask for a single best way of publishing CRS data
   2. We mandate publication of CRS data instead of trying to make it
   possible or easy to do so

Perhaps we are trying to solve two different problems with this requirement:

A) the problem that there are lots of coordinate data out there that have
no clear CRS, making them hard to use in some scenarios
B) the problem that if someone want to publish or consume data about the CRS
(associated with metadata or individual geometries) it is not clear how
that should be done

If there are multiple schools of thought on what we want to achieve with
this requirement, perhaps we can split the requirement in two separate
