+1. It's always a gamble on mobile today to figure out if you're going to
incur the extra cost of waiting for radio, or not.. which adds a
significant amount of latency to the connection. Not sure if it's also
useful to explicitly distinguish "low power" vs "sleep" modes, but at the
very least, "radioAcquire{start, end}" events are much needed additions to
both specs.


P.S. radioAcquire* is likely not the right name.
