My thoughts:

Ambient light sensors have different range in lux depending on the manufacture and type of use.  I don't know if it makes sense to map these values into "type".

Just a couple data point from googling..:

Thanks

We might consider exposing a string 'type' to the light event that matches what was outlined by [1].  I think I would be okay with that as so long as it was an optional field of the event.

Thoughts?

Maybe this is more on the CSS WG side with help from your WG.
We could start discussing that for our next level of Media Queries and have you involved to be sure it's consistent with the API.
I'm not sure we need a joint effort here. What you think? Doug?
