Yes, kind of discouraged, I think… you have to be pretty sure you feel good about the lifecycle of the memory underlying the lwgeom before you start altering it in place, IMO. You have a use case for this? (I guess affine transforms, reprojection)

But getPoint2d_cp returns a const pointer, thus not allowing you to
override values (discouraged?).
