All the infrastructure is shared, so it makes sense (e.g. deviceorientation and devicemotion are spec'd together too). Only security and privacy considerations may differ. This would also make the lives of the editors a bit easier, which is a bonus :)

Given no concerns were raised, I updated the spec as I outlined above to clear up the confusion:

  http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/dap/raw-file/tip/proximity/Overview.html

This should address all the issues discussed on the list. If there are any other issues, let us know.

Dzung - could you redirect the userproximity.html fork to this draft?

Thanks!
