Yes, though I haven't looked into how granular to make that permission
 (e.g. should the gyroscope, magnetometer and accelerometer be grouped
 under the same permission or not, etc.). Input on this from a 
security and user-friendliness perspective would be quite useful, 
especially taking in account how often these sensors' outputs are 
fused together.
