            Bug ID: 27792
           Summary: Ambiguous Text in Device Button State Table 5.1.1.1
           Product: PointerEventsWG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Pointer Events specification
          Assignee: jrossi@microsoft.com
          Reporter: msalsbery@hotmail.com
        QA Contact: public-pointer-events-bugzilla@w3.org

In the "Device Button State" table in section 5.1.1.1, perhaps the text should
be something like "Mouse move with no button state change" instead of "Mouse
move with no buttons pressed".

This would match the current IE 11 implementation where pointermove events have
a button value of -1 when the mouse pointer moves with button(s) pressed.

The current text could be misinterpreted by other vendors implementing the
pointer events model causing incompatibilities.
