Mitigating this issue is a matter of filtering the readings from lower
 frequency `Sensor` objects at the expense of increased latency and 
CPU usage.

Maybe the spec should be more explicit about this issue and carve the 
ability for a very privacy-aware browser to mitigate that threat at 
the expense of performance, but that would require first a clear 
understanding of the threat model.

Given this new info, @lknik, could you please reassess the threat and 
compare it to other threats in the platform to see if it is worth 
dealing with?
