pointer-events="none" and an element's children

Question was raised whether if an element has pointer-events="none"
and one of its children overrides pointer-events="all", can that child
recevie the pointer event?

Please sse discussion here
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=410820#c4

Seems like if the parent element can't receive a pointer event, that
means its children automatically do not because of the capture phase.
Can the SVG WG clarify?  Can clarifications be added to the spec?

Thanks,
Jeff Schiller
