== compassneedscalibration event - cannot confirm interoperability ==
Hello All,
Re:  https://w3c.github.io/deviceorientation/spec-source-orientation.html#compassneedscalibration

W3C staff has not been able to find any conforming implementation beyond IE.  At very least, it does not seem to make sense that support for this event be mandatory for implementations (which is what the current spec text requires).

This feature could remain in the spec, but it looks like it can only be optional given the lack of supporting implementations.  Since implementers monitor this repo, would like to hear feedback.
