It's also used as a parameter type for IScrollSnapPointsInfo.GetIrregularSnapPoints and IScrollSnapPointsInfo.GetRegularSnapPoints, and implementations of those methods on types, such as StackPanel.GetIrregularSnapPoints.

For a vertically oriented element, Near is the top and Far is the bottom. For a horizontally oriented element, Near is left and Far is right.
