The potentially radical solution (if we agree that multi-input devices
 where different input types can be of equal importance) would be to 
of course drop `pointer` and `hover`, and *only* rely on 
`any-pointer`/`any-hover` queries. A halfway solution perhaps to keep 
`pointer` and `hover`, but to add a very strong warning in the spec 
pointing out that the concept of "primary" may not be applicable to 
situations with multiple input devices used 
concurrently/interchangeably, and to advise authors to just rely on 
`any-*` queries...and mark `pointer` and `hover` as "at risk".
