@tobie  In our current system, we model sensors as providing "maps" of
 variables. That is, the event don't have a single `sensorReading()` 
method, but a generic `getMeasurement(String variable)` method. In 
that way, we don't have to specialize sensor interfaces to access the 
different variables.  

Regarding performance, the higher penalty is for the event meta data 
(time stamp, location, attributes) and for the connection/transmission
 overhead, more than for transferring a few more bytes of data.
