It's perfectly reasonable code, but seems strange that it's clipped off to the corner which I think makes it less useful as an example.


If I understand correctly, you're proposing that that such an example would be deleted after a more practical example was available to replace it? 

While I'm 100% in favor of "cleaning out the closet", I used this exact example two days ago to clip a depressed groundwater surface to a landfill boundary :)
