Thanks very much for this condensed presentation of the rationale.  
All readers of this thread, please note the following exchange 
on the X3D Contributors list with regards to using attributes 
over element content in the X3D design.  These contributors 
have Megginson's book, are aware of the archived OASIS discussions 
on attributes vs elements, etc., but are looking for other practical 
examples by which to compare their own designs:
 
>> ok.  might also be good if someone can wander back in the SVG and SMIL
>> archives to learn the pro/con reasons why they made that decision.
>> any volunteers for SVG?  Andreas, can you do the SMIL investigation?

Please note that the XML-DEV archive and list very often serves 
as a source for practical design examples to groups not privileged 
to share the contents of the closed W3C sources.  Support for 
XML-DEV is one means by which OASIS contributes to open forums 
and open software development among ALL XML developers.  Please 
consider this in your deliberations about the appropriateness 
or topicality of XML-DEV threads.

In oldeSpeak: the whole world is watching. Smile.
