Hello API people,

Pointer Lock is an API that provides scripted access to mouse movement 
data, locks mouse events to a single target, and removes the on-screen 
cursor [1].

The pointerlockchange DOM event is fired to indicate when a pointer lock 
has been engaged/disengaged. Per an issue raised on behalf of APA, this 
has implications for ATs - in particular screen magnifiers [2].

The Pointer Lock spec includes a note that acknowledges the need for 
browsers to communicate to ATs when a pointerlockchange event is fired 
[3]. The next logical step seems to be to find a place in the APIs for 
this to be handled - but I'm not sure of the process for doing this, so 
over to you for thoughts!
