OK, right in that case its still a MediaObject.

But since this object is used in the VR industry, which is still developing
and new formats and new containers are still being created all the time, we
will need to surface those common properties, as Vicki says, into a new
Type for the industry to utilize.  Just don't lose sight of how the
Broadcasting industry also deals with containers and formats that are very
similar in your use case, is all I am asking :)  (your VRObject might just
be a container format that becomes an industry standard later on, and
that's fine also)

To answer your previous previous questions, Yes currently its fine to say
that a particular MediaObject or VRObject can contain many parts such as
many ImageObject's
You can currently use hasPart which is borrowed from CreativeWork to say

  "@context": "http://schema.org",
  "@type": "MediaObject",
  "contentUrl": "
  "description": "VRnow scene of part of Edinburgh streets",
  "duration": "T0M60S",
  "encodingFormat": "VRnow",
  "name": "Edinburgh_Streets.vrn",
  "hasPart": [
              "@type": "ImageObject",
              "name": "A pic of Charlotte Square"
              "@type": "ImageObject",
              "name": "A pic of Princes Street"
