actually we didn't get so far with planning 3D support :-)
I personally think that once we start to support some 3D
visualization, we will do it natively, i.e. without GRASS. The reason
is that we still would like to deliver full functionality also without
GRASS, moreover currently we have no active developer for QGIS-GRASS
integration. And finally AFAIK nviz is not supported on windows, which
is also important platform for us.
