Okay just looked at AspectJ - join points indicate an intersection between
aspect and your code but don't necessarily indicate flexability at that
point. Thus hinge points (which also indicate flexability) are subset of
joint points. Hinge points is a term that is in a lot of research. It has
been used in description of AOP/SOC but it predates that (was popular in
early OO crazy).
