I've been also thinking that a single bit would not be enough
to store the validity as the expensive operation we're trying
to avoid is _checking_ for validity, so we want to encode
whether or not the geometry was _checked_ in addition to 
whether it was found _valid_ or _invalid_, so we'd need
2 bits.
