Re: [csswg-drafts] [mediaqueries-4] do `hover` and `any-hover` only make sense for *pointer-based* input mechanisms?

> the spec text should quite explicitly talk about something like 
"pointer-based input mechanisms". By using this more specific 
language, it would be immediately clear that these media features are 
not even meant to help authors detect if there are other input 
mechanisms, like keyboards, present. pointer-accuracy and 
hover-capability would only apply to any pointer-based inputs, and 
authors would still need to use their judgement to know that there may
 be other non-pointer-based input mechanisms present (and this could 
be reinforced in a note).

I think this is a good idea. I was indeed only meant to cover pointer 
based input mechanism, and the keyboard related questions were left 
out for a future (set of) MQ(s) to be drafted when we have a better 
grasp of the use cases and the right level of granularity.

So making it clear seems fine to me.
