The chairs suggest the group integrates the Web Driver Extension API into the Generic Sensor API after the extension spec has been stabilized for a while as an Editor's Draft.

This means the Generic Sensor API will be published as a revised CR with the extension spec integration that triggers another wide review. However, we believe the wide review can be limited to new features, and we can skip security and privacy reviews since the extension API does not expose new features to the Web. Similarly, we believe we can skip accessibility and internationalization reviews since they are not relevant to the extension spec.

We will, however, seek review from the Browser Testing and Tools Working Group responsible for the WebDriver spec.

Please let us know if you have any concerns with the proposed plan by EOY. I'd expect this integration work to commence earliest Q1 2019.
