4.1.    SIGGRAPH in 3- weeks
4.2.    Major announcement on X3D V4
4.3.    SRC (binary geometry) standard
4.4.    Other topics

5.    X3D V 4
5.1.    A number of significant compatibility issues between X3D and X3DOM

5.2.    Pages at URLs below highlight differences between X3D and X3DOM
5.2.1. http://www.web3d.org/specifications/X3dNodeInventoryComparison.xlsx
5.2.2. http://www.web3d.org/specifications/X3dNodeInventoryComparison.pdf
5.2.3.    http://realism.com/x3d-tools/Specifications/comparison.php

5.3.    Need to determine which nodes (or classes or nodes) are to be 
present in X3D V4
5.3.1.    Requirements    X3D as a whole must support everything in X3D V3.3, except 
for nodes or components that are deprecated    End result must be implementable and have two implementations    May add features and./or profiles that are needed, 
documented, and implemented
5.3.2.    A new ‘HTML’ profile may overlap with existing profiles and 
include nodes and./or fields not in any existing profile.
5.3.3.    My causes for concern (not necessarily complete)    Script node name conflict    DOM Namespaces (includes need for IMPORT/EXPORT)    DOM/X3D interaction not using the SAI    PROTO and EXTERNPROTO    Miscellaneous fields (e.g., url, render)    Miscellaneous STATEMENTS (e.g., UNITS)    Geometry (Mesh, Extrusion, ElevationGrid, SRC)    Appearance (Shaders)    Spec-compliant implementations
5.3.4.    How to go about creating an HTML profile that can be 
documented and implemented by December?

5.4.    Source Resource Container (SRC)
5.4.1.    A structure for holding geometry that can be directly imported 
onto a graphics card
5.4.2.    Start on document at 
5.4.3.    Fraunhofer paper and documentation at http://x3dom.org/src
5.4.4.    Is this done as 1 or 2 documents? IOW, are multiple encodings 

5.5.    Other topics (from 4.4)
