I would support introducing the InstantReality extensions 
(http://doc.instantreality.org/tutorial/commonsurfaceshader/) to the X3D 
specification. I want to implement parts of them in view3dscene, so we 
would have at least two browsers (my view3dscene and InstantReality 
itself) supporting this solution.

Docs of my own bump mapping extensions are on 
. These are older and simpler than InstantReality, possibly too simple. 
But comments are welcome.

And if any Web3D members want to take care of improving the 
multi-texturing specification, my comments about it are here: 
. I particular, see section "4.3. Problems with existing X3D 
MultiTexture.mode specification", where I list the problems along with 
proposed specification fixes. I reported these problems to the spec 
comments a couple of times, and completely nothing happened --- all the 
problems are still in X3D 3.3... Anyway, if you would like to work on 
these problems, that would be great, and of course I'm available to 
answer any questions.
