The link above is being used in the explanation of the "device coordinate system" and "screen coordinate system" concepts in https://w3c.github.io/accelerometer/#reference-frame. Before the October 2022 edits in the w3c/screen-orientation spec, the link was taking one to https://web.archive.org/web/20211103010741/http://www.w3.org/TR/screen-orientation/#dom-screen, or

> The [CSSOM View Module](https://web.archive.org/web/20211103010741/https://www.w3.org/TR/cssom-view-1/) specification defines the [Screen](https://web.archive.org/web/20211103010741/https://www.w3.org/TR/cssom-view-1/#screen) interface, which this specification extends:

and the "dom-screen" referred to https://www.w3.org/TR/cssom-view-1/#screen.

Back when the text was added to the Accelerometer spec, the link above used to take one to https://web.archive.org/web/20180212190540/http://www.w3.org/TR/screen-orientation/#dom-screen, or

> The term **screen** is equivalent to the screen of the output device associated to the [Window](https://web.archive.org/web/20180212190540/https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/window-object.html#window), as per [[CSSOM-VIEW](https://web.archive.org/web/20180212190540/http://www.w3.org/TR/screen-orientation/#bib-CSSOM-VIEW)].

and **screen** was a definition of its own.

We need to figure out if we want to add some of the latter text to this spec and link to CSSOM-VIEW-1's Screen definition or find a more specific concept in the Screen Orientation spec that helps us explain the "device/screen coordinate system" ideas.
