Implementation bug. :-(

IE10 actually fires an event called MSPointerHover in this scenario (only applies for pen stylus). We intend to fix that to match the spec by firing MSPointerMove.

I noticed that if you hover with stylus, IE10 will produce mousemove events but not MSPointerMove events. If you hover from one element to another, MSPointerOut and MSPointerOver are fired, but still no MSPointerMove.

Does anyone know why this behavior was implemented?
