Any plans on exposing 'orientation', with a change signal?  Six basic
orientations, possibly a flag to note if the orientation appears to be
changing 'now' (IE rotation seems to be taking place but not yet reached
threshold to consider a new orientation), another for 'in motion' (IE, if
sum of vectors is ~1g then figure orientation, if sum is <>g by at least
10% or some such factor then consider it 'in motion' and do NOT consider
orientation changed), and a signal emitted to subscribers when the
orientation has clearly changed.  

something like:

trigger: orientationchange()
filters: HasAttr(orientation,"facedown")

could be used to set 'donotdisturb', then filter Not(HasAttr....) to
restore.  For my personal use, I'd set it up to always lock the touchscreen
if vertically inverted.  (when not in use, my FR is in my pocket, %100 of
the time it's inverted, and I'm tired of finding launched apps, zhone
trying to dial, zhone GPS open, etc)
