No, that's a good start. Enumerated space. Is that addressing
by name or position? Are the points on the curve or is the curve
a boundary for the points inside the circumscribed space?

Depends on the space.
Consider the integers mod k as a one dimensional space (ie. a closed,
discrete, curve). Every point in the space has a successor (and no two
points have the same successor), so it has no boundaries, yet we can
enumerate all the points in the space in O(k) time.
I presume that's not quite what you meant tho' ...
