Thanks Rob.  It's great to see lots of activity on multiple fronts.

Please also add X3D Graphics to your list.  The following blurb is a bit long but, as you see, we have a done a lot of work already.  Thanks.

The non-profit Web3D Consortium [1] produces Extensible 3D (X3D) Graphics, the international standards for real-time 3D communication on the Web.
The X3D Working Group is considering and consolidating multiple proposals to add AR extensions to X3D [2].
The Augmented Reality Roadmap for X3D [3] is expected to be further harmonized with the fundamentally important work of X3DOM [4], the Declarative 3D for the Web Architecture Community Group [5], and ISO Standards Committee SC 24 Working Group 9 [6] efforts to support an Augmented Reality Reference Model (ARRM).  This composition of requirements, backed by multiple implementations, is expected to eventually result in the next-generation specification for X3D version 4.0.  Web3D is a W3C member, holds a formal liason agreement with OGC [7], and consults closely with a number of other standardization activities including the Khronos Group [8] and the AR Standards Group (ARSG) [9].
