            Bug ID: 21749
           Summary: Setting a capture on an offshore element
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: PointerEventsWG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Pointer Events specification
          Assignee: jrossi@microsoft.com

>From Francois Remy:

Here’s a test case for your consideration where, I believe, IE10 is distant
from the official specification:

<!doctype html>
<html onmspointerdown="eatPointer(event.pointerId)"
  <title>Some pointer events test</title>
   var x = document.createElement("div");
   function eatPointer(id) {
    x.msSetPointerCapture(id); // will throw

I believe the spec does not say the capture should fail, and therefore it
should not. That would mean, however, that the capture may end up happening on
a different window than the one the event was fired for, something which can be
a problem.
