You're right. So I don't think it's a good model for our use cases.

The use case I imagined for (3) where those which involved over-the-network processing, tolerated much higher latency and were expecting much larger batches of sensor readings.

Scenario (2) really looks at > 60 readings per second real time use cases (where you're not increasing polling speed in the sole goal of reducing latency).
