I might be old, I might have gone to school in the Dark Ages, but a point 
cannot have an incline.
"A spatial point describes a specific object within a given space that 
consists of neither volume area or length, nor any other higher dimensional 
analogue. Thus a point is a zero dimensional object."
Oh, the writer of Wikipedia "point geometry" agrees with me.

A way can have an incline, but it needs a three dimensional description.

Please remove from the wiki all the efforts of the "failed_mathematics" group 
at trying to describe a point with an incline, because it is rubbish.
