simplfiy some things as a result

... remove what cannot expose properly

... removing everything that is 'nice to have'

... still have questions around sensors that send data on change versus those
where pulling data

... not because of hw implementations, but due to how exposed to browser, SDK
etc

... will have up to date WD once ongoing updates are set up by Dom

... question of when to release new version of ambient light
