but isnt that a rather big problem considering that we use reverbs for the 3d fx?

Yes - of course. But what I mean is, that a reverb should give an instrument a space or room information. For vocals which sits in front of the playback a lot of plugs work fine (e.g. PCM, UAD, SSL etc.)
But for drums or percussion, strings and other sounds the most plugs lack in that discipline and even an old Roland SRV-2000 or a Lexicon 224 add more space to an instrument.
If you increase the effect send and lower the amount of predelay the instrument should walk behind your speakers instead if the predelay is higher and/or the effect send is less.
The most high priced hardware reverbs are able to generate that without problem. The plugins not really 100%. I hear the difference.

Sometimes I add some chorus and pitch effects of my Eventide DSP4000 on the effect return of an ITB reverb to let them sound more like a hardware reverb and then it sounds perfect.
So the developers of ITB reverbs should care about that - maybe - I don't know. The chorus part/block behind the reverb part/block is an important feature in the signal flow, that UAD has nice designed on their 224 emulation.

But I think in the next years that problem will also be solved.
