It seems to me that nothing is wrong here. If you have the following code:
```html
<a href="#test"><span style="pointer-events: none">link</span></a>
```
the link is still clickable in browsers.

I'm not familiar with exactly how `pointer-events` should work, but it seems that the pseudo-element case is consistent with the example above, because `::before` and `::after` should behave as if they are children of the matched element.
