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

== Should SensorReading inherit from Event? ==
This would be logical given it _is_ an event.

however, we're using a custom high resolution timestamp, and also 
exposing it through the `reading` property of the `Sensor` object.

Couple of options:

1. inherit from `Event` and just overwrite timestamp. Be OK with just 
sticking an `Event` on the `reading` prop of an object.
2. Extend events with the relevant `SensorReading` object. Overwrite 
the event's timestamp? Use a different property for the timestamp? 
`sensorReadingTimestamp`? `highresTimestamps`? Wait for DOM events to 
use high res timestamps? The list goes on.
3. Stick the entire `SensorReading` object in the `reading` property 
of a vanilla event and be done with it.
