Re: [pointerevents] Specify that "click", "dblclick" and "contextmenu" events are PointerEvents

On the call today @teddink said he'd get us details of what exactly 
Edge is doing for click (is it just truncating co-ordinates to 
integers).

More fundamentally, the question was raised of what specifically is 
the value of making `click` a `PointerEvent`.  Ted said he'd see if he
 can find out why that was done - get a concrete use case.  Is it just
 for `pointerType`?  What would be the harm in Edge changing to match 
Chrome/Firefox in having `click` be just a MouseEvent?

Although I can see some value in having the `pointerType` on `click` 
perhaps it's going to be a ton of effort to get that spec'd properly 
for relatively little value?
