WebIDL now supports namespaces, so you could get a real "sensors" 
namespace... however, I'm not sure why WebIDL namespaces are currently
 limited to operations (and don't seem to allow attributes, which 
would serve as the constructors)? @domenic, is something funky about 
the API design here? 

As currently proposed (using `Sensors.whatevs`) in the OP, the 
constructors would be statics on the Sensor interface, which is not 
really what we want IMO. I think we want @rwaldron's design of, for 
example:

 
```JS
const acc = new sensors.Accelerometer();
```
