Note, that PostGIS is a different project which is maintained by separate
team. PostGIS have its own priorities, development plan etc.
PostgreSQL have to be self-consistent. In particular, it should have
reference implementation of operator classes which extensions can use as
the pattern. This is why it's important to maintain built-in geometric

In short: once we implement it for built-in geometric types, you can ask
PostGIS team to do the same for their geometry/geography.
