Thanks for the feedback, @raymeskhoury and @owencm. This matches my 
thoughts wrt to UX.

@lknik: if this did end-up causing fingerprinting/profiling issues 
down the road, we could always carve out the ability for the 
implementor to lie about the error type and pretend the user had 
denied access instead of the device missing such a sensor.
