 In a WFS !DescribeFeatureType request response, the attribute refering to
 the geometry has its type is always equal to "!GeometryPropertyType",
 whether the geometry_column knows the actual type or not :

 <xs:element name="the_geom" type="gml:GeometryPropertyType"
 nillable="true" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1"/>


 Read the geometry_column table to know the type and use it accordingly in
 the request result.
