Actually, adding 3D to PDF has proven to be a HUGE benefit to the users of
3D, especially in the engineering world. There MILLIONS (that we know) of
3D-enabled PDFs that are currently in existence in places such as Boeing,
Airbus, etc. They enable mechanics, pilots and many other folks to be able
to more richly interact with such content.

As for "interactivity", do you mean something such as fillable forms
(which remains a HUGE use of PDF, especially in government and
enterprise)?  Or some other case?   And if so, what?
