Hey Ian,

The Sensor API Specification in the W3 is going to own them.

I spoke to Doug about this on IRC and for now I'm not going to spec this 
in the HTML spec. It would probably be good for these events to be 
combined with the Geo and device orientation events and all specced 
together, but I'll leave that up to whoever specs them. :-)

Things that are impossible just take longer.   `._.-(,_..'--(,_..'`-.;.'
