      Description

      The OGC Web Services Common specification refers to a new URN format which has to be used in all capabilities documents:

      urn:ogc:def:crs:OGC:1.3:CRS84

      The above document states, at page 57:

      "The OGC URN "urn:ogc:def:crs:OGC:1.3:CRS:84" is here used to refer to the "WGS 84 longitude-latitude" CRS specified in Subclause B.3 of WMS 1.3, previously referenced as "CRS:84".

      The trouble is that once defined it can be used for requests as well. For the moment I can workaround in Geoserver by recognizing the code and replacing it with epsg:4326, but it would
      be better to avoid these in the long run.

          I ran into this problem, that the CRS was not reconized when I have created a geoJSON file from QGIS. I wanted to parse the file using geotools and got an error that this CRS is unknown.
