Related -- "force" and rotationAngle are in the Touch Events version 2 
files. clientZ is mentioned, though not included.
They were introduced in exploration of the InkML spec. They were removed 
from version one, for harmony with existing touch implementations

Pressure sensitive devices have been around for quite some time, it'd be
