I've just updated the spec [1] to require that the deviceorientation
event fires when a listener first registers for the event. This is to
provide the web app with the orientation without it having to wait
until the orientation changes. This came up on the WebKit mailing list
[2]. Hopefully this isn't a controversial change, but please let me
know if you have concerns.
