Cool thanks!

IMHO, it depends on how the point-out-of-proj is considered in
terms of the state of program/engine.
If the result is still usable, though not accurate, then exception is
too "strong" option.

However, if such situation is not acceptable for further processing,
then exception seems to be proper option.
