xfq has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/sensors:

== Stop using "incumbent settings object"? ==
"Incumbent settings object" is utilized in [ยง 9.1 Construct sensor object](https://w3c.github.io/sensors/#construct-sensor-object), although there's a warning in the [HTML Standard](https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/webappapis.html#realms-settings-objects-global-objects):

> Warning: The incumbent and entry concepts should not be used by new specifications, as they are excessively complicated and unintuitive to work with. We are working to remove almost all existing uses from the platform: see issue #1430 for incumbent, and issue #1431 for entry.
