Hello all,

With some delay, here is a proposal for adding a new requirement to the UCR
document:

*Requirement:* There should be a recommended way of linking vector
geometry/geometries to the Coordinate Reference System that is used for
positions in the geometry/geometries.

*Related deliverable(s):* Best Practices

*Related use cases:*

I plan to add this requirement at the end of this week, if there are no
objections.
