You are right about Oriented2D and Scaled2D, they should not be
implemented by Double2D. I am just using a line with a dot at the end to 
portray the directions without any transformations. That is quite a 
different approach which might not fit well into VectorPortrayal2D 
because it uses its own shape.

I attached my class and how the direction vectors look like.
