- Purpose: implements the idea of a "claim" (aka "point"), as described here.
- isSupport: If TRUE, this is a support-point.
- isCounter: If TRUE, this is a counter-point. If both isSupport and isCounter are FALSE, this is an informal point.
- If TRUE, validity of this point requires that all sub-points must be valid.
- If FALSE, validity of this point requires only that at least one sub-point must be valid.
- isAnsNeed: is answer needed? If TRUE, add to list of unanswered points if there is no response.
- ...but maybe setting isSupport and isCounter both TRUE would be a better way to signal this?
