This is not correct. The point type can only take cs::cartesian,
cs::spherical or cs::geographic. EPSG:3857 is web/spherical mercator
projection so to represent the points you'll use bg::cs::cartesian. The
problem with this is that the algorithms will treat the coordinates as
purly cartesian so the globe won't wrap around behind the antimeridian.

What would you like to do exactly?
Do you want to convert to or from it to some other SRS or do you have
cartesian coordinates in EPSG:3857 and want to use some Boost.Geometry
