says that UG cannot iterate through the border partition alone, at least then
iterating over the vertices.  You should be able to iterate through
interiorBorder though (the union of interior and border).

Historically, we had a limited set of PartitionIteratorTypes[1].  We also had
a PartitionType[2] to describe the partition of an Entity exactly and
InterfaceType[3] to describe source and destination partition for

To unify things, and to make using the vertices() and elements() functions
easier, recently a new scheme for naming partitions was introduced[4].  The
new scheme makes it possible to name name all possible combinations, even
though not all combinations are supported or are even meaningful in the
context of entity iterators or communication.
