No. It makes sense to consider them special kinds of geometry, so to 
model them as subproperties of locn:geometry.
At this moment I can't recollect what I was thinking. Perhaps I confused 
rdfs:range and rdfs:domain, or it was something else... Anyway, I am 
sorry for the disturbance and I think I fully agree with the proposal :-D
