It would be very useful to see the data flowing through a connector at the edge, or even the data buffered in a connector. Every connector could have a rest endpoint with the same methods as PI Web API. Possible uses:

-Diagnose connection/configuration issues
-Attach a dashboard directly to the connector on the node (for example a display on a monitor in a mining truck)
-Attach third party software for local analysis or alarming of equipment status (for example, alerting the driver of a truck of important events)

I'm sure there are many others...
