Q: Why would it not make sense to add a mobileRequestPermission command 
instead at this point and have it work on Android now with the option of 
also having it work on iOS later on? This rather than two different 
commands and *then* later on make a cross-platform one? If necessary for 
engine code compartmentalization there could be two non-exported 
commands for the different platforms and only export the mobile one.
