This is critical path forward, the X3D Working Group will refine or amend the X3Dv4 specification as needed to ensure consistent results.  This is a primary feature of X3D, especially for archival publication and sharing of models.

Yes, this time works for me. See you then!

Note that the reports you mentioned (from X_ITE and X3DOM) here are
about making mixing RGB textures with materials. These are not
strictly related to PBR (although we of course want to keep things
consistent in both classic Material and PBR PhysicalMaterial). My
specification draft to address the issue of mixing textures +
materials is on
, in particular there's a section "Exact equations change". Review of
them is most welcome.
