 Hi bartv42,

 Thank you very much for pre-emptively going through our oEmbed provider
 checklist and answering its questions. It's much appreciated.

 At this time, it looks to me like Sketchfab isn't popular enough to be
 considered a mainstream provider, based on the number of active Sketchfab
 plugin installs, number of Twitter followers, userbase numbers from
 Wikipedia, number of Google search results, age of the service, etc. While
 none of these metrics on their own are a concrete indication of
 popularity, combined they paint a good picture.

 With that in mind, I don't think Sketchfab is established enough to be
 added to WordPress as an integrated oEmbed provider. I'm going to close
 this ticket as `maybelater` as we do with requests for oEmbed provider
 integration that don't meet the criteria.
