without doing a full review, I have a question.

In GGL, coordinate systems are assigned to points. However, one can compute
stuff like length, angle, area, etc., with having only a proper inner
product operator, without necessarily attaching that operator to each
It then becomes easy to project some data in different spaces, and still
being able run a quick hull. Think of geometric interpretations of non-
coordinate data such as dictionaries, medical images, etc..

So, my question would be: is it that generic to assume that all points
have a coordinate system?
