                  A Surface is a 2-dimensional primitive and is composed
                  of one or more surface patches. The surface patches are
                  connected to one another.
                  The orientation of the surface is positive ("up"). The
                  orientation of a surface chooses an "up" direction
                  through the choice of the upward normal, which, if the
                  surface is not a cycle, is the side of the surface from
                  which the exterior boundary appears counterclockwise.
                  Reversal of the surface orientation reverses the curve
                  orientation of each boundary component, and interchanges
                  the conceptual "up" and "down" direction of the surface.
                  If the surface is the boundary of a solid, the "up"
                  direction is usually outward. For closed surfaces, which
                  have no boundary, the up direction is that of the surface
                  patches, which must be consistent with one another. Its
                  included surface patches describe the interior structure
                  of the Surface.
