Well, a workaround that disregards all the critical low-latency requirements is not a workaround. You know as well as I do that sampling at 60 Hz gives absolutely not guarantee to be able to sync with animation frames. So you're going to get latency up to PIPELINE_LATENCY + ~17ms and a latency delta of ±17ms. So just quite enough to make people in VR throw up.

Well, it sort of frightening that we don't seem to have aligned goals to meet requirements.
