I removed 'pointer-events' from CSS3-UI because it was insufficiently
mature for a CR (too many unanswered questions about how things should
work[1]), but moved it to the collection of features for CSS4-UI:

http://wiki.csswg.org/spec/css4-ui#pointer-events

Spec text has been moved to the W3C wiki for development there until
it's ready to land in a CSS4-UI draft:

http://www.w3.org/wiki/User:Tantekelik/pointer-events

from that spec text:

<dt>auto</dt>
  <dd>
  In SVG content, behave as <span class="value">visiblePainted</span>.
Otherwise, behave as <span class="value">all</span>.
  </dd>

Feel free to incorporate anywhere you think it would be useful. It
will eventually end up in CSS4-UI.

Thanks,

Tantek

Firefox and WebKit (as well as the specification for CSS3-UI) use the value 'auto' which is not defined in SVG 1.1. I suggest adding it to SVG if we keep the property in SVG instead of another specification. 'auto' would be the initial value.
