Re: Suggestion for direct commands ParametricPlot22 and ParametricPlot33

 Presently in Mathematica the same ParametricPlot3D command contains

 generalized spaces, putting n-D surfaces into m-D space where
 special m=2, 3 ( R^2 and R^3)  space could be fully shown.The command
 ParametricPlot3D  could  be renamed ParametricPlot13 and

 While attempting to generalize, it is noted that there are no direct
 commands  to address the options  ParametricPlot22 and
 ParametricPlot33. (n = m =2 and 3 respy.)

 For example,  ParametricPlot22[{ u + v, u v}, {u, -1, 1}, {v, -1,
 1}]  is not directly available but can be realized as a subset
 after setting z = 0  choosing a remote z - ViewPoint in orthogonal
 projection etc. in:

 ParametricPlot3D[{ u + v, u*v, 0}, {u, -1, 1}, {v, -1, 1}, ViewPoint -> {0,
 0, 50}, Shading -> False]

  Likewise a command may be  enabled as:

 ParametricPlot33[{ u + w, u*v, Sin[ v + w] }, {u, -1, 1}, {v, -1, 1},
 {w, -1, 1} ] for a  3-parameter manifold into 3-space.
