            Bug ID: 24706
           Summary: Clarify when setPointerCapture is supposed to work
           Product: PointerEventsWG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Pointer Events specification
          Assignee: jrossi@microsoft.com

Currently it seems that one could use setPointerCapture for mouse pointer at
any time. That would lead to various unexpected behaviors, like ads stealing
pointers etc. I think mouse should be part of active pointers only between
down and up.
