This is the same question I have.  What is the communications phy that will interface with the outside world?  I'm sure it's going to be something where there is an existing bit of hardware that requires a ieee ethernet/mac or other addressable interface.  seems like the VIN would be best put in a datagram transmitted over that phy.
