An initial Magnetometer Sensor draft is now out too:

Magnetometer Sensor
https://w3c.github.io/magnetometer/

> The high-level Device Orientation API decomposes into these three low-level sensors: Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Magnetometer. Following the Extensible Web Manifesto principles, we now expose these primitives to web developers to enable more advanced use cases.
