Istio and transaction topology for serverless applications

just watched this short video on Istio:

Basically it's microservice plumbing for Kubernetes that adds security and telemetry. So I wondered if that telemetry included topology information and found that it DOES (or it can with a plugin):

So in some way off future, you'll be able to "automatically" obtain topology data without having to install and manage data collectors and agents (also without asking developers to instrument their code). Kinda neat.
