I know I asked about alternate mapping methods earlier, but here goes again.

TriPlanar Projection allows artists to project textures on all 3 axes. Currently, only the Z axis is supported in World Machine which makes texturing strata, or vertical faces, impossible. IMO, World Machine badly needs this and if included would make it extremely powerful.

Here is a link regardin triplanar projection in CPU Gems 3, with source code:
