So it seems like for this proposal to be generally useful that content
needs to able to be interactive (ie, the user needs to able to click on
stuff just like they can with 3d css). Otherwise the number of use cases
for it seems exceedingly small.
I'm not sure Adobe even has this ability. I certainly don't see them
using it in these demos.
[vh] That is correct, we don©öt have picking implemented (yet ;-).

Yet? :-)

Have you thought about techniques to do picking efficiently? It might be useful to start brainstorming, although I fear that if we discuss theoretically plausible approaches we might get roped into actually figuring out how to make them work :-)

:-)

The reason I said yet is that I would like our team to experiment and then report on what we find. I do not feel I have enough information and implementation experience to have a good input.. yet :-)
