Web developers with devices capable of measuring `distance` might only rely on the value, breaking the app when used on devices with only near/far boolean.  Could it make sense to introduce an enum, e.g  `MIN`, `NEAR`, `MIDDLE`, ... `FAR`, `UNDEFINED`, encouraging developers to use values not causing unintended behavior?
