Hi Rob,
Thanks for the review.

You usually don't want to. At really low temperature trip (5 degree C or
0 degree C) you care about starting to monitor when the temperature
falls below the trip. At high temp trip points, you care about starting
to monitor when the temperature rises above the trip point. The thermal
framework takes care of stopping the monitoring (dependent on type of
monitoring, hysteresis etc.)
