- 1 vs 3. Same error, different response times ;-)
- Interesting research question: what % of users is aware of sensors 
supported by their devices ;-)

If we agree that **Option 2 is the way to go**, we can explore further
 (although admittedly not much to go?). Probably no ideal solution. 

Initial idea: 
- as I said, we may instruct (non-normative suggestion) platforms to 
think in creative ways here about actual replies for permission calls 
to make it (functionally) act somewhat similar to Option 1 (think 
random delays). I realize it's not foreseen by Permissions API, it 
would only highlight new possible directions to pursue ;)
