This is clear.

So this means we will have a single event type named "state_change"?
Or better "transition".

Then here the attribute name will be:
/events/in_activity_state_change_walking_rising_en

or if we call the event type "transition" this will be:
/events/in_activity_transition_walking_rising_en

I am a little bit confused :).
