Thanks @fergald. The [current model](https://w3c.github.io/orientation-sensor/#model) is a balancing act between developer ergonomics, privacy, and implementability (how the permissions map to corresponding platform APIs).

Adding @snyderp to comment on sensitivity of relative orientation from privacy perspective drawing from the latest research and also to get PING's recommendation.

For more context on relative orientation in general, you may find our [explainer](https://w3c.github.io/motion-sensors/#relative-orientation) helpful.
