Overall, I think the spec is pretty clear already.

1. A sensor measures different physical quantities and provide 
corresponding raw sensor readings which are a source of information 
about the user and their environment.
2. The scope of this specification is currently limited to specifying 
primitives which enable expose data from local sensors. Exposing 
remote sensors or sensors found on personal area networks is out of 
As work in these areas mature, it is possible that common, lower-level
 primitives be found,
in which case this specification will be updated accordingly.

I can include Bluetooth as an example of a PAN here.
