The spec certainly intends to stipulate at most one callback. As I
mentioned, the algorithm in the spec has no concept of permission
'state', only of requesting permission from the user, so there can be
no 'change of mind' for a single call to getCurrentPosition() or
watchPosition(). If you think the spec needs clarification, please
propose some improved wording.
