`partial` is just a helper that allows definitions to be split within document or multiple documents / specifications. Therefore, by defining `partial dictionary SensorOptions`, we allow coordinateSystem to be set for ALS, proximity and other sensors that do not need such functionality.

Also, if we use partial definitions, dictionary identifier must be same, `SensorOptions`, so, it will be confusing, as developers would think that Accel, Gyro and Magn, doesn't support coordinate system sync, unless we explicitly mention it in every spec.

I would vote for `dictionary TriaxialSensorOptions : SensorOptions`, as it is verbose and doesn't affect non 3D sensors.
