Default [fitsbits] WCS keywords in tables

On Tue 2010-04-06T12:56:25 -0400, William Pence hath writ:
So far there have been no objections to this simplifying WCS convention
for images stored in FITS binary tables. If that's really the case,
then I will write up a short description (crediting Mark Calabretta as
the originator) and submit it for inclusion in the Registry of FITS
Conventions on the FITS support office web site.

I fear I have missed some subtle point about this.
How is this not just another application of the Greenbank convention
as applied to WCS keywords at least as early as 1995?
Is there some substantive difference in this case?
