How about:
Use device sensors in ways that support users.

I don’t think using words like “appropriate” provides much of a guideline, 
so I’m not a fan of either of these.  I think Andrew’s roughly captures 
the point, but I’d suggest going instead down a path similar to GL 2.3, 
Seizures, and stating what we know not to do.  Maybe something like:
“Sensors: Do not use device sensors in ways that presume physical 
capabilities of the user.”
Note I dropped “additional” and “input”.  Neither of these helps the 
handle at all.
Katie, your version I think is not the right message.  That is, the 
guideline should not be to use sensors because there’s no accessibility 
reason for that.
