I am trying my best to get to this,
Will try to refresh in a couple of weeks.

As in the sensor APIs ? or the zone level APIs ?
The sensor level APIs are anyway new; the zone level ones
we have to work out a way for them.

Is this what you are referring to ? Could you confirm/explain a bit more ?

Thanks,
