For the API docs, it might be beneficial to have both versions (perhaps just symlinks of a single set of docs with a similar table?). While I agree with PhistucK about there not being shipping unprefixed implementations yet, having both documented might help for SEO.

You both make good points.

So, when someone goes to [1] 
<http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/dom/events> and then clicks on one of 
the `ms` prefixed pointer events, say 
<http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/dom/events/mspointerhover>, perhaps 
that later page should then mention this event is now being standardized 
and point to the non-prefixed version.

(BTW, it appears none of the "standard" pointer events in the LC are 
included in [1]; I suppose that will be fixed in the future ...).

Even though this is on a standards track, it has not reached an initial milestone with more than one implementation yet. WebKit does not seem to be in favor of this method, for example.
