Re: [deviceorientation] Add API for requesting permission to receive device motion / orientation events (#57)

That is correct, I forgot that the `navigator.permissions.request()` method has been removed in favor of each specification integrating its own method for requesting more permission, but calling into the algorithm you mention. A cursory look at `query()` made me think that that had been integrated into it instead.

Given that the Generic Sensors specifications I linked to above should be updated to include a `requestPermission()` method similar to [Notification.requestPermission()](

As the DeviceOrientation API does not provide an object in the global scope like AbsoluteOrientationSensor or Notification (except perhaps DeviceOrientationEvent) what do you think about not adding a method specific to this API but instead relying on the ones that need to be added to the newer specifications?

My recollection is that WebKit does not implement the `deviceorientationabsolute` event and so implementing a single `RelativeOrientationSensor.requestPermission()` method would suffice for your purposes.
