> The forward case (3D to 2D) is trivial: just drop the height. The reverse conversion
however is in principle undefined, but in practice often needed. The "less bad" approach would
be to take a mean-sea level of 0, which is uneasy to convert to ellipsoidal height. See §2.2.4
in IOGP Publication 373-7-2 – Geomatics Guidance Note number 7, part 2 – April 2015.
