[ambient-light][proximity] Updated SoTD in EDs & staged WDs to note the Generic Sensor API plan (ACTION-735)

Hi Frederick, Dom, All,

Per my action [1], I've updated the EDs of the Ambient Light [1] and Proximity [2] specs and added the following warning to the SoTD to more clearly communicate the current status:


This specification will be remodeled after the Generic Sensor API. Implementors need to be aware that this specification is not stable.

Implementors who are not taking part in the discussions will find the specification changing out from under them in incompatible ways. Vendors interested in implementing this specification should subscribe to the repository on GitHub and take part in the discussions.


I've also created WDs for both the specs, in staging at [4] and [5]. Both the WDs pass the new and shiny Pubrules Checker [6]. My expectation is we do not need to include "changes since the previous draft" or htmldiff, since this is just an update to the SoTD itself. I set the publication date to 16 July 2015. Frederick, Dom - feel free to adjust the date as needed.
