RE: Confusing thing about lostpointercapture event

I’ve updated the spec to list Document and Element in the non-normative table.  Maksim, let us know if that doesn’t fully address your concern.

You're correct that 5.2.1 List of Pointer Events should be updated to include Document as a trusted proximal event target type. We will update the table to list both Document and Element. Does that change alone address your concern?

Hi folks.

Latest draft of specification of pointer events have point 10.3.1 Implicit Release of Pointer Capture:
If the pointer capture target override is removed from the document tree, clear the pending pointer capture target override and pointer capture target override nodes and fire a Pointer Event named lostpointercapture at the document.

But according with point 5.2.2 List of Pointer Events
lostpointercapture event can be fired only at element.

This dissonance has confusing actions for me. Maybe we should change something?

Thanks, Maksim Lebedev.
