How might such be incorporated in an LC app? only via the browser 
object... right?

@ Bob Sneider:  right, critical mass for a development environment for 
animation creation inside LC is probably not going to happen, though a 
physical engine would be nice... There are too many existing tools, both 
free and expensive (Blender, Unity) that are way, way out in front.

OTOH: if LC could just, natively render/play them... that would be huge.

I can get any number of animations created "outside" what I want is to 
be able to run them "inside" LC.

i.e. perhaps  extending the player object  may be in the realm of doable.
