> To allow `.query()` but also prevent adding a fingerprinting vector via the API, `query()` would still need to prompt the user to get permission. I wonder if that's reasonable or if that kills the use case?

I don't see how `query()` would be a fingerprinting vector if it only returns whether there is a wake lock active for the current page.
