You make a good point and I can both agree with it and align with this. 
If it goes this direction I think we should align hover to this model where they act as Boolean rules.

Hover right now we are okay with because of 'on-demand' assuming other UAs align with this and utilize this. 
I would prefer that hover acts very similar to pointer if we go with the above though.
