adding an informative note re touch events?

Just as an initial question: would it be in scope for the pointer events 
spec to have an informative note about the relationship of pointer 
events and the (reverse engineered) W3C Touch Events spec? In 
particular, I'm thinking something to the effect that touch events and 
pointer events are different at a fundamental implementation level (e.g. 
when mouse compat is dispatched, the fact that touch events treat click 
as mouse compat, the implicit vs explicit capture model), and that this 
spec does not cover how these different models can be reconciled...and 
that it's up to UAs to work this out?

(partly inspired by https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=105463#c33)

Thoughts?
