Discussion on the Web3D Board of Directors teleconference today noted these important points.  Thanks.

I expect that we will soon begin collecting a number of security issues as part of our X3D v3.4 evolution, and adding this as a weekly topic on our working group teleconferences.

Insights examples contributions and participation are always welcome.
