But why do we need vector_type at all? If we had Vector concept it should
just work with algorithms. And difference() could work for Points and
Vectors. The user could call

Point p = return_difference<Point>(p1, p2);

or if he want to use some legacy vector class he could adapt it to the
Vector concept and use it:

MyVector v = return_difference<MyVector>(p1, p2);

just like in the case of Geometries.
