Yes, you're right.
Geometry.c functions are just a thin wrapper around the
FdoFgfGeometryFactory that makes it easier to operate on char-based
streams of WKB.

But why not to put those functions to a common place that all providers
will be able to use it ?
I don't see anything MySQL-specific there.
