Opening on behalf of Rick Byers. [1]

Pointer Events spec defines a mapping with legacy mouse events for content that
is not aware of pointer events. In a similar scenario, there is content that
uses touch events [2] and is not aware of pointer events.  For UAs that wish to
implement compatibility touch events for such content and for authors that wish
to understand the relationship between pointer events and touch events, a
mapping should be defined between pointer and touch event dispatch.

Discussed possibility of defining this as a WG Note, potentially published
instead by the Web Events Working Group. [3]
