xAPI's Data Interoperability Research

This board is intended to generate and prioritize thoughts and ideas about what it means for xAPI to be interoperable. What else, beyond what's in the xAPI specification, would support interoperability?

A common way to push data posted in one LRS to another

I'm actually promoting Art Werkenthin's comment to a thought all it's own. 
Original: I would like to see a way to "push" data to another LRS, as opposed to the current method now which is a "pull".  We have customers requesting that when we receive data in our LRS, that we push it to some other LRS with rules based on the properties of the statement.

    This is kind of already covered in the spec in that the LRS can act as an activity provider, it's just that not all LRSs offer this feature. (Watershed offers push, pull and receive). I think it's right that there are some differentiating features that are not required for conformance.
