tobie has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/sensors:

== Simplify extension of the Permissions API for concrete sensor 
implementations ==
Accessing sensor data has multiple privacy implications and is 
therefore subject to permissioning. The [Permission 
API](https://w3c.github.io/permissions/) allows developers to check 
whether the permission to access a given API was already granted (or 
denied) by the user on a per origin basis.

Currently, exposing that status through the Permissions API requires a
 modification of the Permission API spec itself. Ideally, we'd want 
sped editors authoring concrete sensor specs to be able to extend the 
Permission API within the same document.

This needs concertation with the editors of the Permissions API.

**Actions:**

- [x] Liaise with @mounirlamouri and @marcoscaceres
- [ ] Investigate relationship to [Permissions 
API](https://w3c.github.io/permissions/).
- [ ] Try to find a solution that doesn't imply a [Permissions 
API](https://w3c.github.io/permissions/) update for every concrete 
Sensor spec.
