I disagree, but if we have accepted that a vector is a collection, then a polygon is a vector. Or it at least has a vector.

If you're into mixing math and CS terms, then no, the second:
A vector is an element in a vector space and a tuple is an element of a
Cartesian Product over (generally) unstructured sets.
Yes, using vector for an array type was not Stepanov's best choice of
terms (he says so himself), but what you're doing is like arguing that
"debt" should be spelled "det". Yes, it should. No, it isn't. :)
