This would not be acceptable on WebKit-side. Limiting sampling rate for those events would mitigate fingerprinting but not some of the other privacy issues (e.g. The site can tell if the user is standing or laying in bed).

We'd require a user gesture / permission for any of those events. We could also disable API altogether as @annevk mentioned.
