Hi, Folks-

As a follow-on to the "wheel" dicussion, I would like to point out that many
devices may have multiple wheels (PCs included, depending on the input
device), so it would be nice if we allowed for that facility going forward.
It is not be appropriate for this version of the Spec, but we should bear it
in mind. In the same vein, I would like for us to ultimately consider how
multiple pointers might be dealt with in the same way (consider multiple
mice, a mouse and a trackpad on a laptop, or a touchscreen). These are not
currently serious concerns, but if we do not plan for the future, we
unnecessarily limit options.

Regards-
Doug
