I understand this is still a very early draft, but still few random 
comments.
I don't like attribute names theta, phi and gamma.
Could we have something more describing.

"Implementations that are unable to provide all three angles must set 
the values of the unknown angles to null"
That is strange. The type of the property is double. That kind of 
properties don't usually give suddenly non-numeric values.

The draft doesn't say what is the type of the dispatched AccelerometerEvent.
