This should allow for x/y/z to be Decimal and if needed convert to float inside the init method.

Hi Iulian. Thanks for the report.

I'm going to say wontfix here initially. Loosening the accepted types adds complexity, and it's not clear that only Point would need to be adjusted.
Rather, I'd suggest casting your data before instantiating the Point (as I presume you're doing).

It may be worth a post on the GeoDjango category of the Forum to discuss your use-case and how best to handle/support Decimal instances.
