I agree with dws, OOP definatley seems like it would fit with your project. Plus you could do fun things like overload the stringify operator by adding
use overload "\"\"" => \&as_string;
to the EmmisiveColor class. Then your simple_properties could become:
sub simple_properties { my $self = shift; return "appearance Appearance {\n" . " material Material {\n" . " ". join("\n ", $self->properties). "\n" . " }\n" . "}\n"; }
Overloading a string operator might be quite handy for what it looks like you are doing, and I bet you would find other significant simplifications with an OOP approach. Here is a quick overloading/oop tutorial. (shameless self promotion :)

[stevieb]: did my pull request challenge today, Locale::gettext. Weird layout for a dist, and I have no idea how to use it, but it's always nice when you can force someone else's work be use strict; and use warnings; compliant :)
[stevieb]: ahem... s/no idea how to use it/didn't read enough as to what it's used for/
[stevieb]: interestingly enough, someone else got my Devel::Examine:: Subs distribution for their PRC, and I applaud the change. This dist is extremely complicated and mostly obfu, but the person doing it understood PPI enough to change...
