The first two points facilitate the import of 3D models from software such as Blender.

Here is an example: http://globe3d.sf.net/g3d/futj.jpg

Coincidentally, the Wavefront file format is so simple that you can also write 3D models "by hand" in that format.

An example made in an Excel sheet is provided along with the importer, in the ./tools/wavefront directory.
