Bug 20219 - Make pointerType a string instead of an enum?

Hi folks,

In the resolution for Bug 20219 [1], we discussed considering providing some guidance about extensibility for pointerType.  I've made the change so that pointerType is a string. I propose the following text be added in below the table of strings for mouse/pen/touch:

"If a user agent supports pointer device types other than those listed above, the value of pointerType SHOULD be vendor prefixed to avoid conflicting names for different types of devices. Future specifications MAY provide additional normative values for other device types."
