I think the proposal is to add MSO-compatible 3D effects, so extend
SdrObjCustomShape with properties that allow importing and rendering
these 3D properties.

My understanding is that E3dScene is nice, but it doesn't preserve
editable text, and in general not a 1:1 match to MSO's 3D approach,
which is just a set of additional properties on (2D) shapes.

Good, that matches the above. :-)

I assume those 3d models are less interesting to you. It's somewhat
ironic that we had GLTF models and it was removed as nobody bothered to
keep the feature... :-)

Thanks, got it. I'm interested to take a look once you're happy with the
binary filters (so I can use that behavior as reference).
