The option 2 aligns the spec with the known implementations:

https://www.w3.org/2009/dap/wiki/ImplementationStatus#Ambient_Light_Events

This will allow us to pass the interop phase.

Later, we can extend the DeviceLightEvent as per 1 if we get support from implementers. If we'd choose the option 1 now, wed block on the interop.

My recommendation would be to send the CfC for the option 2 and see if there are concerns from implementers and others.
