Just to confirm my suspicion that a hovered stylus does, predictably, 
have a pressure of 0...so getting a pointermove event with zero pressure 
it's a fair bet that it's a hovered (at very very gently brushing 
against the screen) movement, for instance. As such we're probably right 
not to magic up a new touching/not touching attribute.
