All sensors based on the generic sensors API rely on the permission API by virtue of subclassing the `Sensor` interface, so I think we should be covered.

Relying on the permission API doesn't necessarily imply actually prompting the user for permission, though. And for good reasons. "Dialog box fatigue" is a real concern, and by no means the only solution to mitigate threats.
