Minor suggestion. >32k events do not happen everyday, but <32k events 
do, a lot. So, instead of adding size to the <32k events, it's better to 
add some size to >32k events. What I mean is:
1) Leave length as it is, 2 bytes.
2) Have one value reserved, say 0xFFFF
3) In case of >32k event, write first 0xFFFF, and then 32 bit length.

This way, old events do not grow larger, only large event header 
increases - becames larger on 4 bytes.
