stream type for custom data

Hello gstreamer experts,
I am writing a plugin that will analyze a video stream on a
frame-by-frame basis and issue results for each frame. I had
envisioned that my plugin would be derived from GstBaseTransform and
that it would simply transform each input image frame into an output
record, which I could then pipe around, maybe send out with udpsink,
perhaps pipe to a custom "image annotator" plugin that would annotate
the image with the analyzed results, etc...
Is this a common use case? Or am I using the wrong tool for the job?
If this is common, what stream type should I use to describe the CAPs
on the src output? Would it be appropriate to label it as
"application/custom" or something like that?
Also, the results records are variable length... what's the best way to
Thank you for any pointers you can give me.
