Hi Alain and welcome!

Unfortunately not. We don't even have a default display widget so we 
just print out whatever data PostGIS gives us (WKT or Base64-encoded WKB 
depending on the version)... which we certainly never want to display as-is.

In fact, in the few uses we have of the postgis cube, we just hide the 
attribute using CubicWeb's "uicfg" mechanism.

Any improvements there would be more than welcome.
