A midpoint makes the arc over-constrained and introduces the potential for a case where the arc descriptor is not self-consistent (e.g. one constraint is not on the same arc). ??An arc specified by three constraints is always possible to draw; one with four might be impossible.

It is always possible to draw with four contraints if you were to use center point, radius, start angle, end angle.
