Hi Dzung,

There are some cases that a device has multiple proximity sensors, for instance in an automotive system. My Honda has multiple proximity sensors in its front and back bumpers. Also in tablet / ultrabook, you have a proximity sensor and also a camera that can also use as proximity device. Camera can detect user near / far as an proximity event.

Do you have a code example or two in mind to demonstrate how you'd actually use this in your web app?

I'm asking, because I don't see how an additional arbitrary string field could work.

Are there any native implementations from which we could learn from?
