None of operating systems uses that cursor on buttons etc. So why in the web it should be different? Designers use this cursor because of ignorance and, presumably, to compensate bad design decisions when it's not obvious which element is actually interactive. Unfortunately, that doesn't make it accessible, because you still need to hover cursor over the element. Many devices even unable to do it at all. So, I'm against it. Please, don't make bad design decisions spreading.
