Bug report #20624
remove redundant CRSs
|Affected QGIS version:||3.4.1||Regression?:||No|

New CRSs for South Africa appeared in QGIS 3.
So-called EPSG:120480-102489 and EPSG:102562-102568 are not even in the EPSG registry, so where did they come from and why are they assigned EPSG authority?
They are completely unnecessary and redundant as 120480-102489 are already covered by the official EPSG:2046-2055 CRSs and 102562-102568 are already covered by the QGIS 'ZANGI' CRSs.
If they were added to QGIS, please remove them. Else if they come from proj.4, please indicate that so we can raise an issue with proj.

IDs above 100000 used to be user-defined in QGIS. But GDAL also uses them above CRSes come from https://github.com/OSGeo/gdal/blob/master/gdal/data/esri_extra.wkt. QGIS doesn't originally have them, but crssync adds them on install from GDAL (I guess also in 2.18).
