Because no CSS specifications currently define the pointer-events 
property. It is defined in SVG 1.1, but the use of pointer-events in CSS 
for non-SVG elements is experimental. The feature used to be part of the 
CSS3 UI draft specification but, due to many open issues, has been 
postponed to CSS4.

The W3C CSS Validator generally checks, in CSS3 mode, against a vague 
collection of documents, consisting of CSS 2.1 and selected "CSS3 
specifications", excluding many that are still at Working Draft level - 
and pointer-events isn't currently defined even at WD level (or even in 
an Editor's Draft, as far as I can see).

It isn't.
