ah yes I was not very clear when I wrote: "let's assume p = p-0". What
I really meant is to indeed consider "p=p-0", and then completely
forget about Points and only deal with Vectors (and "displacement
vectors"). In that case you only need to make the distinction when you
apply the transformation, and the rest remains sounds. But, yes, I
agree that in that context "T * a" remains the only thing which is not
very beautiful but it is so convenient !
