Cool, so you're both talking about the same thing, and we all agree it's an implementation detail, hence the term polling is inadequate and I should stop using it. You've convinced me on that front. :)

So sampling it is!

Would love to see if we have the same understanding of https://github.com/w3c/sensors/issues/209#issuecomment-304284155, now. :)
