I don't think there is any limitation as to what you can communicate with someone from long distances using this approach, just as long as you specify upfront what it is that you will measure and when. That's a protocol, but certainly it is not like we know what the message is going to be until after we finish the measurements according to that protocol. I guess my question to you is how could it not be a message if I can send (in principle) to you the entire Library of Congress database? Or, conversely, be able (in principle) to create a two-way radio using this method?
