Absolutely and useful for both push and pull.

An in-vehicle sampling application, perhaps dynamically changing its
subscription based on on-board analysis or refined directive from cloud
server it is sending information to, can utilize cache or local storage
of data from Gen2 that is already well serialized and compressed in
some format we have yet to decide on for when it has connectivity and
can push it to the cloud. Alternately as in your pull from vehicle
directly using Gen2, that format will make transmission notably more

Let's focus on compression and different existing formats to see what
may be the most suitable for these similar use cases.
