Andy, if I read that example correctly '2D coordinates' there are meant to
represent some physical dimensions, while here we are talking about a way to
index an n-dimensional raster. That's quite a different world.

FWIW, I believe the same reasoning can be applied to the color-space discussion.
While I think a good library to deal with color spaces and transformations between
them would be nice, that is a different domain than how colors are represented
essentially as bit-fields in pixels.

You were proposing not to lump independent concepts / domains together, so let's
keep them separate ! ;-)
