Has X3D improved capability enough to meet CAD requirements?  I  
haven't kept up but the intense discussions of VRML97 were that it  
couldn't. I am assuming the profiles meet some set of criteria for  
speed and density of information. There may be some cultural  
perceptions to overcome.

OTW, CGM still rules the roost for delivery of illustrated parts  
breakdowns, RPSTLs, etc., and last I looked, web 3D formats have  
disappeared from the US Navy approved format lists for technical  
information deliverables.  There is a slow but certain convergence on  
page-based PDF because the hyperlinking is adequate and print-support  
is still vital.

Note:  I am not talking about exchange formats, but final fixed deliverables.
