Not sure whether I get this. We do not need SSN:Sensing anymore, right? 
It was required in the old-SSN because Observation in SSN was not an 
event but a Situation/Context. The 'act of sensing' as we called it in 
the original SSN is what is now called Observation in SOSA/new-SSN, 
namely the action that results in the estimation, or calculation, of the 
value of a phenomenon; see also Simon's clarification: .
