That's probably the most sensible thing to do.

I think the easiest solution is for me to add an abstract operation to
 get a value from the latest reading which takes _sensor_ and _name_ 
as argument and returns value or `null`.

Then you can just define your attribute getters roughly as:

```
Return [=get value from latest reading=] with |this| as 
|sensor_instance| and |attribute_name| as |key|.
```
