Description

Standard EPSG code for Italian projections (3003 and 3004) do not include datum; as a result, reprojection is always wrong by about 100 m. Can we add 4 more projection definition to our SRS database?
It should only be added the +towgs84 parameter so that we'll have:

3003 corrected, mainland: same as 3003, with
+towgs84=-104.1,-49.1,-9.9,0.971,-2.917,0.714,-11.68

3004 corrected, mainland: same as 3004, with
+towgs84=-104.1,-49.1,-9.9,0.971,-2.917,0.714,-11.68

3003 corrected, Sardinia: same as 3003, with
+towgs84=-168.6,-34.0,38.6,-0.374,-0.679,-1.379,-9.48

3004 corrected, Sicily: same as 3004, with
+towgs84=-50.2,-50.4,84.8,-0.690,-2.012,0.459,-28.08

In GRASS this has been solved by a similar approach:
http://freegis.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/*checkout*/grass/src/libes/gis/datumtransform.table?rev=HEAD&content-type=text/plain
I think this can be done now, as it does not impact anything else, and it would make life a lot easier for Italian users (remember, the second largest QGIS user community!).
Details in http://www.crs-geo.eu/

New custom codes should be in the 32,768-100,000 range; 39031, 39032, 39041, 39042 should be ok.

Italy is not the only case, there are obviously others (in my case I'm referring to Portugal).

My suggestion is to implement this #1908 and then just maintain the list of datum association (3 and 7 parameters transformation).

Ex:
http://trac.osgeo.org/grass/browser/grass/branches/releasebranch_6_4/lib/gis/datumtransform.table
