Thanks for the clarifications. This behavior seems good to me. My only concern was that waiting to fire events would cause pages to get stuck waiting for confirmation that sensors are or are not available. On the other hand firing an empty event would would raise the question of whether we should fire another one after the page calls `requestPermission()` on a device without sensors.

@rakuco, let's follow WebKit's lead and implement it this way in Blink and report back if we find any interesting corner cases. This behavior should also be specced eventually.
