[X3D-Public] Historical question

Hey all,

I've just started using FreeWRL and was surprised that it was rejecting 
scripts with 'exposedField' on them. Now, I've used Contact, Cortona, 
Flux/Vivaty, and Instant Player, and they all support this. But the 
FreeWRL guys point out that 'exposedField' is not in the VRML spec (it 
is in the X3D spec but as 'inputOutput').

So, how did this 'exposedField' come to be, when, and if it's in so many 
popular browsers, how is it not in at least an Amendment, and (to the 
FreeWRL folks), why not implement it there?

Thanks for any enlightenment you may provide.

Dave A.
