We'd adopt the `requestPermission()` proposal here in Safari if there is general agreement on it.

Regarding @richtr's [comment](https://github.com/w3c/deviceorientation/issues/57#issuecomment-459302243), we consider this to be a privacy and security hole that is being actively exploited in the wild. Given that, we don't think it is acceptable to do the slow deprecation path or to experiment with different forms of partially limiting the data to see if it works. If the stakes were lower, we would not feel the need to aggressively remove.
