LineSensor - mentioned by Max for X3Dom ie if you are doing an editor, and you have 3 axes, you want to be able to drag something by a single axis. Planesensor has a way to thunk to 1D but it's not 100%. (I implemented LineSensor in freewrl to see if there were gotchas. Works fine).
Polygon2D with holes - someone mentioned a need when doing city sidewalks that have holes for trees.
-- or have all exporters compute triangleset2D or indexedfaceset
-- or have an intermediate format that allows it, and a tool that converts to a more compact set of nodes

> Have fun with X3D!
> ===================================================================
> *Projects Wish List*
> Do you want to get involved? Here are several interesting projects with potential for broad impact that are looking for energetic developers.
> Motivated individuals with software development skills and Web authoring experience are welcome to start, or help develop, any of these candidate projects. Many diverse talents are needed. There are some serious opportunities here!
> You are welcome to use the x3d-public at web3d.org mailing list for in-depth planning and design discussions.

> *Recognition Possibilities*
> Web3D Consortium wants to help incentivize these efforts Candidate awards under consideration include:
> Consortium announcements on web3d.org website and Twitter giving credit and announcing availability
> One year's free Professional Membership in Web3D Consortium
> Free registration for the next VR Hackathon or Web3D Conference
> Bragging rights in some kind of Web3D Developers Hall of Fame
> Web3D members who really want certain results might offer special rewards
> Got questions or ideas? Please Contact Us.
> *Further Improvements*
> Who gets to add new projects?
> X3D working group moderates community dialog and development
> All working groups have opportunity to add and guide projects
> Board of Directors approves awards and is advised regarding of major new efforts
> Communications Team can publicly report significant opportunities and progress
> Overgrowing: we may need to avoid collecting too many...
> Perhaps this will evolve into a Top Ten Projects list, with other projects still available
> Additional ideas welcome, thanks for considering the possibilities.
