[X3D-Public] Draggers in X3D?

Do you mean something like this:
... the stuff you want to drag
If X3Dom defines Sensor nodes, you might be able to hack a non-standard Dragger node in javascript, by combining the Sensor and Transform nodes into a Dragger node. 
In general, there may be a hunger for higher-level nodes in X3Dom which are currently left up to Proto developers in desktop web3d.  Perhaps there could be a PROFILE for desktop web3d that's compatible with popular x3dom composite nodes.

Thanks for the examples!
Actually, I meant something more simple, in an ideal case something that does not require any additional JavaScript code, except for catching some
 event, maybe. For example, I could imagine that you rotate some gizmo, which is represented as a special node, and that node throws an event (or has an output field) which contains the current transform, so you can connect (/ route) that transform to the object
 you want to rotate.

Do you mean something like the Sensor nodes:
