Hello All:

I do not think an API would be the solution for facing the need of 
standards in sensors.

I agree, however in the need of a solution -- a kind of standarized 
solution -- for the forthcoming trends in data collection.

XML worked pretty well for this half a decade a go or more, I guess. 
Personally, I do not see JSON as a solution appliable to this concern.
