@tobie, sure, readings are immutable. My question was about expected 
behaviour for cached readings. As Rick mentioned, als.reading would be
 null, that is fine, we've implemented as spec says. However, spec 
doesn't specify what happens if developer caches reading and accesses 
it after stop is called.

Should we return data from the last reading before stop was called? Or
 maybe we should return initial values that are specified for 
SensorReadingInit dictionary?
