comment How to add a simple WFS layer from GeoServer to OpenLayers map?
Yes and no: WFS is XML, so it necessitates an XML parser on every platform but Firefox (and 'the desktop'), and it also doesn't mix well with the only way we have to do cross-domain communication: JSONP. GeoJSON, on the other hand, is natively parsed in nearly every browser and is easily and commonly wrapped to be cross-domain compatible. Obviously not apples-to-oranges, and that's not the extent of my WFS critique (bloated, poorly extended, etc).

comment Why are Data Projections relevant?
Yeah - my question is directed towards projections in data only. The justification for output projections is well-established.

comment Why are Data Projections relevant?
Thanks Dan. The reprojection reason I feel is transitory; it's a performance tweak to keep data in projections then, and it'll become less necessary as we have faster reprojection? As far as datums, could you elaborate on how some projections are better suited to datums, and how that differs from the problem of reprojection? Is it possible to 'update' a dataset's datum and keep a record of the change?
