I'm not sure if this API is really meant for accurately reporting all the possible power management states of the system as Anssi pointed out.

Okay, point on complexity taken. My question is what if you want to add
complexity, is there something in the event that prevents that (I have no idea
about DOM compatibility issues)? Don't get me wrong I think having more device
support is great.

My other complain was, it is too simple. E.g. 'isPlugged' has no guarantee
that the battery is getting charged. Is this a problem?
