In many situations, it is helpful to be able to review behaviour,
ie screencast, or game-replay for instance

In theory it is possible to mimic interactivity of cursor, using javascript,
http://gnote.org/eyed.html is an example demonstrating an eye-tracking test.
However inevitably this will fail as it is a workaround.

This enhancement request is to implement a pseudo-cursor attribute or possibly
element, such that once animated it would fire events identically to the

Ally note: this ensures the user remains in control of the true cursor, if not
all events.

Security note: There is a security consideration, but as javascript already
provides means to hide real cursor, and present and animate pseudo cursor, this
does not effect security, afaict.
