In the Control Panel, when looking at streams or status, I see that Carriots adds an identify key/value of "_t":"str" to streams and "_t":"sta" to status. I've also seen this used as an attribute as defined in the API for listing streams or status.
Now, I wonder if perhaps I could use this same key/value in a Create Method on Streams to cause a Status message to post. That is, I've built the HTTP body for my status data, but put a "_t":"sta" in there as well and posted it to the http://api.carriots.com/streams/. What happened is that the data was logged as a stream and not a status. The "sta" was changed to a "str".
Is this the desired behavior? I think I could reduce my code footprint slightly if I posted all messages to streams, but built a different body based on if it is data or status.
