Self describing nodes

Is there any way to really define new types of nodes in VRML ?

I looked everywhere in the spec and the only mechanism that I found
(self describing node) seems to imply that if I need to inroduce a new
node type (say torus) every instance of that type will have to
replicate the type definition.

Is my reading of the spec correct ?
