For the namespace, it is no problem to change it and I agree, geometry2d
would have been better. We might change it to "geospatial" or maybe
"geospatial2d". For the dimensions, we could have added a Z or a
N-templatized array of coordinate values, but because we don't do
anything with them nor didn't planned to, they are not there.
