Thanks for clarification, but as I mentioned before,  linear 
acceleration readings can be provided by hw (same accelerometer imu) 
without doing sensor fusion in SW. Therefore, new 
Accelerometer({includeGravity: false});  is similar to new Gyroscope({
 correctForDrift: true });

If we make separate LinearAccelerationSensor interface and claim that 
its data is fused from accelerometer and gyro, it would be misleading 
and incorrect.
