[X3D-Public] X3DOM - navigation type TURNTABLE

This is always a problem.
I want to examine some object by freely rotating the object using a 
defined center of rotation related to the object location.

I want to examine some location by freely changing my view position 
and orientation around it using a defined center of rotation relative 
to the viewpoint location (Most typical Examine?)

I want to examine the environment by freely orienting my view using 
the defined center of rotation of the viewpoint.

So, I want to look around, move while looking towards a location, move 
while looking around, stop to look at something or everything, it 
depends. All the navigation types are usefull, just stringing pointers 
and keys and sensors together is, ... well, it really hasn't been done 

Best Holiday Regards to All,
