Use of the IRF with different energy bounds with respect to the default
We found that ctobssim does some extrapolation of a given IRF for energy outside the validity range of the IRF itself.
This is clearly a problem because the resulting spectra extend to energy bins where we do not expect to have any significance.
Is it possible to change the code in order to avoid this kind of extrapolation?

- Project changed from ctools to GammaLib
I propose to limit the effective area response always to the energy (and offset angle) range that is specified by the file, hence no extrapolation should be done beyond the boundaries of valid values. The same should also hold for the background rates.
I move this issue to the GammaLib project as the implementation of this change needs to be done at GammaLib level.
