they will mostly care about the actual orientation values and know 
that the latency will be different between something connected and 
something external, but it is not like that they will drop using a 
headset because of latency issues, if what they care about is the 
headset orientation :-)

It is all about balance. If we say that these are super low level APIs
 and that libs need to be built around them to make the APIs 
consumable, well then we can very well get away with only having 
populate methods and nothing for the simple case, which you were 
arguing for :-)

But then again, I don't think having a low levelish API means it is 
mutual exclusive that the API can be nice and that something has to be
 build around it.
