[Gmsh] periodic pairs of internal nodes of each edge

Dear Christophe,

Thank you for your reply. In fact at first I thought I didn't use 'periodic
surface' the right way. Now I can focus on the post-treatment.

I have checked the node ordering of triangle_6 element, point 3 is always
in the middle of point 0 and point 1, and point 4 is always in the middle
of point 1 and 2, etc. So the correspondence of middle point can be deduced
based on this relation as we have already known the the correspondence of
the principle vertices. This is my understanding of your response. Am I
