> what if the input mechanism deemed primary is not a pointing device? Say, a device with a keyboard deemed primary, and a gamepad. Should pointer match none because that's the case of the keyboard, or should it match coarse, because within the pointing devices, the gamepad, by virtue of being the only one, is necessarily primary, even if overall it wouldn't be?

i'd say that's the remit of the UA to decide in that case. i'd tend to lean towards "if the UA deems the keyboard to be the primary input mechanism, and the gamepad is only used very infrequently, then there's no primary pointer, but only an `any-` pointer input. what about adding an extra example to that first note? (just added it as a comment)

basically...up to the UA, and this spec won't say what's right and it's up to the UA. or is that too handwavy?
