 I remark that this question no longer has any significance.
Jesse has distinguished between the old "points", that don't have
area, and his new "Points", which are defined to be circles of
some fixed area. Of course with definition "Points" do have area,
but - may I say it - what's the point? If the question had been
(as it now translates) "Do circles have area?", the discussion
would have been simpler and shorter(I hope!).
