```webidl 
interface RawMagnetometer : Sensor {
  readonly attribute RawMagnetometerReading? reading;
};
```
option 1
```webidl 
interface RawMagnetometerReading : SensorReading {
    readonly attribute double x;
    readonly attribute double y;
    readonly attribute double z;
    readonly attribute double xBias;
    readonly attribute double yBias;
    readonly attribute double zBias;
};
```
Let's decide on the naming, and then I will put up the PR.

Ideally `xUncalib` would have been a good choice in naming, but going 
by the recent consensus, I think `RawMagnetometer` can signify that 
the readings are uncalibrated, so we don't need to use `xUncalib`, 
etc. 

Option 2

```webidl 
interface RawMagnetometerReading : MagnetometerReading {
    readonly attribute double xBias;
    readonly attribute double yBias;
    readonly attribute double zBias;
};
```
since we anyways don't distinguish between `x `and `xUncalib` in 
attribute name.
