However, I think I'm getting myself confused - apologies for the noise, 
firing off emails while childminding a hyperactive 3 year old is not a 
good idea, perhaps. I'd be happy with a left-mouse button activation 
hover click (do those activation buttons - which the surface pen doesn't 
have, actually have a canonical name?) to fire the same event sequence 
as a quick tap with the pen on the screen itself, so pointerdown, 
pointerup, and click
