All kinds of inputs are interactive elements too. For example textarea: it usually sussgest with beam cursor that I could type in it. Pointer would just mislead here. Another example: range element, which you mostly use for dragging a hangle to get a needed value. Sure, you could also click to get a specific value, but how you’d make it work: one cursor for clicking, one for dragging.

As far as I see you need to specify not just “interactive elements” group for applying pointer by default, but somehow narrower group which would actually benefit from it. Links, buttons, sure. But what else?
