This is interesting. I assume that if I have a touchpad on my laptop
that multipoint touches with work.
?? can voice commands be mapped to 'touch' commands.
?? is it up to the author to ensure that the keyboard and/or mouse
controls are mapped to touch events
?? is this another javascript black hole that the browser knows nothing about.

we will need to review Guideline 2 Keyboard to make sure this stuff is covered.
