Yes, (3) is for the #98 use case. Given those are essentially going to be sent over the network for further analysis, it might be worth aiming for something as fetch/stream-compatible as possible (Which afaik typedarrays are pretty good for too). We'll probably want reporting frequency to be very different from polling frequency in such cases, so maybe a completely different API for this?

For (2), on the other, we want something closer to (1) in API terms, so you can really easily move from dealing with a single data point to multiple ones.
