No -- that would overcount the area, because it would overlap for
neighboring dots. The area is an *estimate* for the piece of surface
around the dot that is not assigned to any other dot. If you added up
the areas for all the dots for one atom, it would *approximately*
equal the surface area for that atom. However, to get the total area
for an atom, residue, etc., don't do that -- just use the already
existing areaSES (and areaSAS) attributes of atoms and residues.
