Reviving this old thread - I don't think we ever talked about it on a call
(I was away for the following call and it looks like we never re-scheduled
discussing of it).

The Microsoft test submission says it expects to receive a pointerover
event in exactly this scenario (
but it's not actually validating that it happens and IE11 appears not to do

I think we need some clarity on what the spec intends here.  Is IE11's
behavior correct?
