Developers can always implement their own sensor fusion algorithms at 
the app layer by combining discrete sensor data in a means that they 
see fit (assuming that the raw data is sufficiently time-aligned for 
this purpose, as per issue #4).  I believe what is required is not 
really "sensor fusion" but a way for the developer to request 
time-alignment of the data being returned by discrete sensors.  

If so, it seems the application can create its own timestamps for the 
data returned by discrete sensors and deal with time-alignment as it 
sees fit (e.g. interpolating missing values if possible, etc.).  In 
other words, sensor fusion at the app layer can be achieved without 
changes to the existing API.
