Jose,
Some comments:

In the example, you use "session.startWatch(watchOptions)" when you
should be using "sensorConnection".

For the "sensor not available" exception, I suggest to use
"DOMException.NOT_SUPPORTED_ERR (9)" from
http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-2-Core/core.html#ID-17189187.

For "threshold", recommend that the description be:
The threshold attribute represents a sensor data value which when
reached will cause a sensordata event to be delivered. Multiple watch
operations with different thresholds can be used for example to
monitor sensor "min/max" ranges. Monitoring for a delta changes can
also be accomplished by clearing a watch upon the sensordata event,
and creating a new watch with the desired delta threshold.
No exceptions.

I don't see the "SensorManager" interface you refer to re "a proposal
to support basic discovery is on the draft under the SensorManager
interface.".

Thanks,
Bryan Sullivan
