The Drag and Drop description around pointing devices is too restrictive and
suggests that browsers only need to support non-mouse operations on devices
without a mouse.  This functionality needs to be available for obligatory
keyboard users even on systems that support a mouse.

Current:
7.7 Drag and Drop: On media without a pointing device, the user would probably
have to explicitly indicate his intention to perform a drag-and-drop operation,
stating what he wishes to drag and where he wishes to drop it, respectively.

Recommend change to:
“Drag and drop operations must be able to be accomplished without a pointing
device.   The user would probably have to explicitly indicate his intention to
perform a drag-and-drop operation, stating what he wishes to drag and where he
wishes to drop it, respectively.”
