@rwaldron, the list of sensors some implementers _may_ want to gate behind a permission is basically all the concrete sensors that subclass `Sensor`: https://www.w3.org/das/roadmap

Currently "legacy" `DeviceOrientationEvent` and `DeviceMotionEvent` are [behind a permission gate on iOS](https://w3c.github.io/deviceorientation/#id=permission-model) and [Chrome is WIP](https://crbug.com/947112), while the corresponding modern APIs are not.

@rakuco @reillyeon can probably comment on Chrome's permission-related plans for the APIs that subclass `Sensor`.
