I'm kind of confused why we would move back to **option 1** after having had consensus to move to **option 2** or **option 3**.

I initially spec'ed **option 1** because my understanding was that it was (a) what was implemented in both Android and iOS and thus something developers would be used to (according to you, that's not the case), and (b) it would be a lot simpler and less resource hungry to implement.

I'm no longer sure about that actually. It becomes especially complicated if we need both rAF-sync and non-rAF sync on the same page.

Decoupling the sensor object from sensor observers is something I suggested in the past already and that could make sense looking into again, but I don't think we'd be able to move to a singleton altogether.
