The way I see it is that the units declaration in the file says "I am in 
  kilometres" so everything presented in that file will be in that units 
group. So anywhere that you have an Import statement or use of an 
externproto, the interfaces will automatically be in that units rather 
than in whatever they use internally. In doing so, the need to specify 
how and what scaling occurs between the various files (or really 
execution contexts if we want to be X3D-specific terminology) is 
automatically and implicitly defined by the spec. Yes the browser has to 
do some multiplies or divides between the two files as the proposed spec 
words talk about, but there shouldn't be a need to call that out 
directly in spec language. Though, I guess, given that we use Examples 
all through the spec, showing something like that may be useful.

       Programming is essentially a markup language surrounding
       mathematical formulae and thus, should not be patentable.
