Looking at the Maya documentation, it has a VRML2 importer and that is the 
VRML format chimera exports (also known as VRML97).  So that's the best 
match for Maya.  Chimera's X3D output is the XML version, not the VRML3
version, and so is very different.  If anyone is interested in writing 
other exporters for chimera, please contact me and/or send email to the 
chimera-dev mailing list.
