WebEvents-ISSUE-9: Interaction of touch events and mouse events [Touch Events spec]

http://www.w3.org/2010/webevents/track/issues/9

Raised by: Matt Brubeck
On product: Touch Events spec

For compatibility with existing web sites, browsers on touchscreen devices usually translate touch input into mouse events.  Browsers that support touch events typically send both mouse events and touch events.  Current implementations allow content to prevent mouse events by calling preventDefault() on the touch events.

To ensure interoperability, Touch Events should specify this behavior.  For example:

* In what order are all the touch events and mouse events sent?

* When preventDefault() is called on each touch event, what effects does it have on the corresponding mouse events?  (ISSUE-4 is a specific case of this general question.)
