DOM Level 3 Events defines mouseenter/mouseleave hit testing transition
events.[[1] These events are different from mouseover/mouseout in that the
mouse has not "left" the element simply because it went over a child (and the
events do not bubble).  This makes mouseenter/leave the event analog to the CSS
:hover state.[2]

Pointer events should support this concept via pointerenter/pointerleave events
(supporting multi-pointer interactions as well). [3,4]
