Agreed. I like the change. I never liked the absolute restriction on
EPSG identifiers, and this puts the onus on people who want to use them
to do so such that the meta-information in the CRS object describes what
clients need to know, and allows for clients who need more to get what
they want.

Agreed. Currently we have GeoJSON in use by: 

 * OpenLayers
 * OGR (http://gdal.org/ogr/drv_geojson.html)
 * MapFish Java implementation?
 * GeoJSON Python Library, http://pypi.python.org/pypi/GeoJSON/1.0a3
 * Shapely (GeoJSON Geometries)

 * FeatureServer
 * GeoServer
 * WPServer 
 * Pleiades?
 * Knowhere? I Think.

Desktop Apps: 
 * FME
 * Cadcorp SIS (I hear? can't find a link)
 * Arc2Earth, according to http://tinyurl.com/2oo5o8

Web Services:
 * geo:truc, http://www.geotruc.net/
 * FireEagle, I hear?

Are there more that I'm forgetting?  I googled for a while, but couldn't
find anything else obvious. 

Is there any reason not to 'go to 1.0' with the current specification?
