@tobie You are absolutely right, what I wanted to address is that, lets say:

iOS, Ash in ChromeOS (10Hz) or Windows WM uses Accelerometer to get basic orientation info.

The web page that creates `new Accelerometer({frequency: 0.0005});`, would not set effective sampling frequency of the sensor, since HW is used by other components. [Windows API](https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd318991(v=vs.85).aspx)  clearly states this use-case (SENSOR_PROPERTY_CURRENT_REPORT_INTERVAL).
