but you have the same issue as with motion and orientation which is that you cannot control the watch parameters for the sensor and the side effects of addEventListener

I looked at the Sensor API.  I was hoping to have something very simple and lightweight.  I most likely will implement other sensor types in the same way - simple dom events with attributes that are specific to the event.  This is what we did for device motion and orientation, and it has worked out quite well.
