Extend the CRS properties with some automatic options

My use case:

Set up a series of CRS transitions for working in South Africa, that will result in my project view always bing in the ideal series for the location and scale.

Albers<->UTM<->Transsverse Mercator, transitioning between these at user-defined scales (with recommended defaults from EPSG or other sources)

Then, once in a CRS, set its parameters dynamically based on current location and extent:

Albers: dynamically set central meridian and first and second parallel
UTM: dynamically choose best zone
TM: dynamically choose best zone or set central meridian.

Include the ability to use user-defined CRSs. This might entail extending user-defined CRS descriptions with optional valid extents.
