In other cases like this, we've usually avoided having a property as
the data is already there in DT. Granted, it's not in the most
convenient form. We already have an iterator to iterate on all
occurrences of a property in the tree (or subtree). Sure, it's not
really that efficient, but does it matter? The question that comes up
is do you have sensors not defined in DT?
