I thought about it, but it seemed overkill. Also, this wouldn't apply to the
stellar forms, since many of them are composed of highly irregular polygons.

Taken care of - see my reply to Warp.

Yes - see my reply to Warp.
Many of your suggestions become possible by having access to the vertices, of
