Not that it's all that relevant, but I will note that the (very old) Java 3D API also had [SpotLight](https://download.java.net/media/java3d/javadoc/1.5.0/javax/media/j3d/SpotLight.html) as a subclass of [PointLight](https://download.java.net/media/java3d/javadoc/1.5.0/javax/media/j3d/PointLight.html).
