Chris;

I don't know if you were around the Web3D Consortium when the X3D  
profile concept was created, but it sounds like it is what you desire.

I think you will find that the X3D Profile scheme provides a means of  
specifying subsets - Dr Behr's group at Fraunhofer (writers of X3DOM)  
and the rest of the X3D crew are trying to do just that.

Their "html" profile is at http://www.x3dom.org/?page_id=158 - it is  
certainly not cast in stone, but is a good start, IMHO.
