Sure.  But will they?  Show us examples of existing functions
(preferably already in Emacs) that would benefit from this change.
An easy example would be functions which look like

    ;; some code here
    (forward-paragraph count)
    (foo (point) other args)
    ;; more code

But it's not clear to me that

    ;; some code here
    (foo (forward-paragraph count) other args)
    ;; more code

is going to be more readable without seeing examples.  Since point has
a byte code, it's not particularly costly to use point.
