Re: [Bug 24346] Clarifications on Pointer Events Types section

Just wanted to check about the "plus firing of compatibility mouse 
events" which is still in the default action for pointerdown. 
https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/pointerevents/raw-file/tip/pointerEvents.html#list-of-pointer-events

Am I just not understanding this correctly, and it's actually carrying 
some meaning that eludes me? It mainly jars with me because, as the new 
line after the table says, all events can fire mouse compat events, so 
why are we explicitly saying it for pointerdown?

Or is this meant to allude to the fact that on pointerdown the UA on 
non-hover-capable devices may also fire mouseenter/mouseover?
