If I am reading the submission correctly, if an active pointer is captured via setPointerCapture(), then even pointerover and pointerout events for that pointer are captured.  So, as the pointer moves around the document, will the capturing element receive pairs of pointerover/pointerout events each time the pointer crosses any element boundary on the page?  If so, will there be properties on the event object which indicates the element the pointer is leaving and the element the pointer is entering?
