For fingerprinting reasons, it seems you don't want it there just when there is a sensor.   So either always there for all of these type specs, or don't use that at all and just use addEventListener.  (this is about all of these, not this draft in particular).

How do we reconcile developers relying on feature detection and avoiding device fingerprinting at the same time?
