You've asked for a lot here, and for most of it, the best I can offer you is: "I understand (and even share) your concerns, but what you're asking for takes a lot longer to implement than you may like. However, we are working on clarifying the interface in this area." Now, regarding some of your confusion, I'll put it all in point-form to keep it simple: * There is no way to delete a measurement. Not via the website, and not via the REST API. * As REST offers 4 basic verbs for interface: GET, PUT, POST, and DELETE, we opted to use DELETE as the "STOP" method, as we have no intention of ever actually deleting measurements. * The concept of archiving measurements is being re-worked and may disappear only to be re-used later as a means of hiding the measurements from your list. We're still working on what the Right Way to handle this should be. I hope that clears things up for you.
