A few thoughts

- It seems clear that treating device motion and orientation events differently than other user inputs such as camera and microphone was unfortunate in hindsight.

- It seems logical to effectively promote them to user input with respect to privacy considerations, and reuse the same affordances used for other user inputs such as camera and microphone here.

- Ideally this would be a default stance taken to protect user privacy, as I am not sure exactly  how/if this would impact generic sensors and other less established functionality at present.
