That's good news! I will update Pointer Events to reference this definition instead. 
https://www.w3.org/2012/pointerevents/track/actions/104

No worries, though perhaps UI Events should be updated now that you don't intend for these to be defined in that spec. Would be good to avoid further proliferation of confusion.

Agreed, this is definitely preferable.
