Emil, correct me if I'm wrong.
For higher dimensions the user would be forced to use traits explicitly:
It'd also probably be possible to add a free function get, now or later if
the users requested it:
There are std::get, boost::get and boost::geometry::get serving similar
purpose so it should be intuitive.
