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

== Find a better name for 'unconnected' state ==
The 'unconnected' state is supposed to represent the initial sensor 
state before the 'start()' method is called for the first time, i.e. 
before we know if the sensor of the given type is actually present in 
the device.

The problem is that 'unconnected' looks confusing -- it could be 
treated as if sensor is physically unconnected from the device (for 
example a USB sensor hub). So renaming is advisable, possible options 
could be "unintialized"  or "undefined".
