Splunk Enterprise Security

Can WinEventLog populate the Endpoint datamodels?

We wonder whether the WinEventLog can be applied to the Endpoint datamodels.

It seems to us that -

Endpoint.Process fits greatly win event id 4688 (A new process has been created).
Endpoint.Service could be populated with win event ID 4697 (A new service was installed)

However Source types for the Splunk Add-on for Windows lists for the CIM data models -
Application State, Authentication, Change Analysis, Performance, Updates and Vulnerabilities, while Application State is listed as deprecated.
