            Bug ID: 24971
           Summary: Should got/lostpointercapture be dispatched
                    asynchronously or synchronously
           Product: PointerEventsWG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Pointer Events specification
          Assignee: jrossi@microsoft.com
          Reporter: bugs@pettay.fi
        QA Contact: public-pointer-events-bugzilla@w3.org

https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/pointerevents/raw-file/tip/pointerEvents.html#list-of-pointer-events
says those events are asynchronous
and so does
https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/pointerevents/raw-file/tip/pointerEvents.html#the-gotpointercapture-event
and 
https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/pointerevents/raw-file/tip/pointerEvents.html#the-lostpointercapture-event

But the algorithm in
https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/pointerevents/raw-file/tip/pointerEvents.html#pointer-capture
doesn't talk about tasks or async dispatching.
It just says 
"Fire a gotpointercapture event at the Element on which this method was
invoked."
and "Fire a lostpointercapture event at the Element on which this method was
invoked."

The algorithm should probably say something like
"...queue a task to fire a pointer event named 'got/lostpointercapture on
element"
