Good to know, thanks.

This is the edit to 1.2T that introduced the "ignore the attribute"  
behaviour[1] for 'points'. Looks to me like an oversight, I think the  
intention was to stay compatible with 1.1.

If there are no objections I will mark the relevant 1.2T tests as drafts  
for now, and file an errata for 1.2T to align with 1.1.

Cheers
