> Should 'update sensor reading task' use reading at the time of task creation or 'latest reading' when task is executed? (in Chromium we do latter, might reduce latency due to queue processing delay)

The former. The whole point of this exercise is to avoid the later case which might create concurrency issues.

What's the extra latency like from the queued stuff? Totally application-level code dependent?
