A few non-substantive comments and Qs re the 19 February 2013 LCWD of 
Pointer Events:

* Glossary - I think it would improve readability to move the Glossary 
to the front of the spec (before the terms are used). Add "hit test" to 
the Glossary.

* 7.{1,2}#1 - these two sections says setPointerCapture and 
releasePointerCapture can throw a DOMException. As such, perhaps but the 
definition of these two methods should mention the exception (when 
pointerId is bogus)

* 7.{1.2} - does InvalidPointerId need to be documented in some 

* 8.1 - first sentence includes "... dispatch a pointer event from for 
device that ..." and that doesn't read quite right (perhaps there is an 
extra word in that clause).

* 8.1#4 - should "pointerleave, then dispatch a pointerleave event" be 
"pointerleave, then dispatch a mouseleave event"? (Same question for 
8.2#5 i.e. if event is pointerleave, is pointerleave dispatched or 

* 8.2#2 - the text at the end says to dispatch a "mousemove event", 
should that be "mouseover event"?
