I have been doing some similar stuff to what you describe (primitives and
groups arranged in hierarchies), but for 2D graphics, and I have used Luke
Tierney's "external pointers" to provide access to graphical objects which
represent the graphical output.  See the R developer page
http://developer.r-project.org/ for Luke's stuff, but please note the
disclaimer at the top of that page.
