So you think in this specific situation the hooks need indeed be
called for each point move?  Or did you mean something else as "the
correct thing"?

Perhaps we need to step back and talk about the situations where these
hooks are supposed to be used.  Because I cannot see any sense in
calling the hooks when the values of these properties don't change.
Maybe you already thought about all that, and the conclusion is the
same, but I think for the record it is important to have the
discussion here.

Redisplay can be forced as part of a command.
