yes. a  point is a pair of comma-separated data.numerics

don't confuse the attribute with the container

   * zone/@points defines an enclosing shape
   *WhatEverGeneticsWants/@points can define a line

but we should not allow Geneticist's to use <surface> for their line, I would suggest.

Either way, the definition of @points is not affected.
