Gilles commented on GEOMETRY-49:
--------------------------------

The bug tracking system is not a good place to propose design changes.
You should post to the "dev" ML.  Thanks.

> Binding generic interfaces and classes with Point does not have any implications on most
classes. Point interface should be removed. For classes that do require a distance method,
there should be a Metric<P> (as in metric space) interface. This leads to a much cleaner
and consistent API. Also semantically, a point is just a bunch of coordinates, and does not
define distance... it is the metric that does.
