Glad to know I'm reasonable :)

In seriousness, I agree that what you outline in terms of how an author should treat hover is reasonable. Plus, with the additional text I added in https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/pull/715 which strongly suggests that authors should still not rely on hover to take account of any other non-hover-capable inputs and the note I added in https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/pull/842/files#diff-86306790afb9d5330bbdda192a7b99f6R1783 we've probably got at least a warning to authors of potential gaps in what they can detect, which would hopefully temper their enthusiasm when `any-hover:hover` evaluates to true.

Nonetheless, I'd be interested in what others in the CSSWG think (to either changing when `any-hover:none` evaluates or the potential for a third partial/mixed value.
