The <surface> element currently defines rectangles only. Adding @points to att.coordinated will allow the definition of non-rectangular surfaces. This was already proposed in Feature Request #218 "Add @svg:points to att.coordinated" (https://sourceforge.net/p/tei/feature-requests/218/) but for some reason not implemented yet.

    This seems to me to be a simple corrigible error in the original implementation of @points, which should have been added to att.coordinated rather than specified directly on <zone>. A side-effect of moving it to att.coordinated would be that <line> and <surfaceGrp> would also inherit it; for <line> that makes perfect sense -- anything that can be outlined using a rectangle can presumably also be outlined using a polygon -- but <surfaceGrp> is rather an odd case; I'm not sure it needs to be in att.coordinated at all. It's simply a grouping element for <surface> elements, used (for instance, from one of the Glines examples) to group all the leafs of a quire. None of our example show the use of dimensions on <surfaceGrp>. That said, it seems harmless for it to have those attributes, and perhaps someone wants to group surfaces (or surface groups) on a single plane, and specify their coordinates.

    Council discussion 2014-07-01: This is a corrigible error and should just be fixed. Make green and assign. (Another ticket might be raised for the surfaceGrp issue mentioned in the discussion.)
