@richtr The problem with those recommendations is that they still break existing applications but in more subtle ways. As outlined in [my previous comment](https://github.com/w3c/deviceorientation/issues/57#issuecomment-447430709) before we can realistically restrict the fidelity of the data available via this or the Generic Sensors API there needs to be a mechanism for developers to express to the user agent the level of data fidelity required for their particular application. The proposed `requestPermission()` amendment to this API, and the additional parameters to the Sensor constructor in the Generic Sensors API, are that mechanism.
