Thanks for clarifying this point.  I agree.

"Point" is okay.  Another possibility could be "ArrowUp" and
"ArrowDown".  I like \arpeggioNormal, but if it is intended to be a
"generic" command, it would need to include reverts for the 'stencil,
'arpeggio-direction, and 'X-extent properties.  This isn't ideal, but
it might be a workable solution.
