Yes, I agree, 3D brings accessibility in itself to certain groups,
for instance that is what Göran Langes talk at GDC 2007 was all
about. Kids who excel in 3D games but fail in school which is also
based on text just as the web. And not only kids by the way, Göran
has the same experience, he is 63 years old. So I certainly see a
place for web 3D (despite the fate of VRML).
