If you sync to windows.requestAnimationFrame / VRDisplay.requestAnimationFrame, you could make "frequency" be defined in terms (times, fraction) of rAF.

Now that even rAF can be different things, like UA hardware, VR headset, how do we device which one to sync to? If we can answer that, we might also be able to answer what we sync with in a Worker. There is a lot of talk about throttling tabs and workers in Chrome, so this might become important soon.
