I have to agree with everything @HenrikJoreteg said. The only [use case](https://w3c-webmob.github.io/wake-lock-use-cases/) we have identified is "wake lock" (cooking a recipe, reading a book), and *optionally* and *temporarily* requesting full brightness (e.g., Starbucks, Eventbrite, and airline apps) ... we might not even need the timeout, it could just disable when the user performs and action such as turns off the screen, switches tabs, etc. 

I also would definitely not want a website screwing around with the brightness level for random reasons, specially because on brightness adapts dynamically to the environment and time of day.   

In my mind, the only question is around permission for bumping the brightness up.
