Generic Sensor API

<scribe> scribeNick: fjh

tobie: working on ambient light spec, plan to have something tomorrow
... pull request for ambient light sensor
... also cleaning up generic sensor API
... had conversation with Chromium implementer about it
... looking into Android and IOS, what is exposed to implementations, need to simplfiy some things as a result
... remove what cannot expose properly
... removing everything that is 'nice to have'
... still have questions around sensors that send data on change versus those where pulling data
... not because of hw implementations, but due to how exposed to browser, SDK etc
... have opened issues on these topics, will open some more
... will have up to date WD once ongoing updates are set up by Dom
... question of when to release new version of ambient light
... first get feedback on documents, then consider publishing new WD

fjh: are there multiple issues in the event based versus polling

tobie: will write up more about it, then discuss
