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

== Investigate possibility of synchronizing coordinate systems ==
Many sensors operate in device coordinate system, where X and Y axes are aligned with screen X & Y axes in the natural orientation. 

When OS changes rendering surface orientation from it's natural orientation, sensor and screen coordinate systems may become out of sync, thus, require usage of ScreenOrientation API, matrix math, swapping of X / Y or changing Euler angle order.

Would be nice to have a way to say to such sensors to be in sync with screen coordinate system, so that extra calculations and/or API usage is not required from developers.
