wseltzer has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/deviceorientation:

== Security/privacy consideration: cross-origin linkage ==
Since all origins displayed to a device will share the same pattern of
 device orientation changes, this API may provide an avenue for 
cross-origin correlation. If that threat can't be mitigated, it should
 at least be noted (and user agents may want to disable access or 
provide users a means to disable access to these data)
