Maybe it should also be noted that if script-based solutions act on a certain
style of X3D-in-HTML markup, then it is likely that UAs would never be able to
directly support X3D with the same markup, else they would break content that
relies on the script-based solution.

An alternate solution specifically provided by HTML5 for embedding data to be
processed by scripts is <script type="model/x3d+xml"><X3D>...</X3D></script>.
That has its own drawbacks but may be worth considering, if the data benefits
from being inline in the HTML page.
