To address this issue, perhaps we could add an informative note to https://w3c.github.io/sensors/#permissions along the lines of:

>Note: Implementations can use implicit signals to decide whether to grant access to sensor readings without explicit user's consent. These implicit signals could be, for example, the [installed] status of a web application, frequency and recency of visits. A user that has installed a web application and used it frequently and recently is more likely to have established a trust relationship with the application provider. Implementations are advised to exercise caution when implementing strategies that rely on implicit signals.
