It's simpler, but not that much simpler. One reason I took the approach
I mentioned is that some proximity sensors only report a boolean state
(near/far); without a notion of accuracy, I don't know how your proposal
addresses this.

Also, I thought the "activate-on-addEventListener" was considered a bad
practice based on the feedback to DeviceOrientation?
