Re: [pointerevents] Pointermove should not require a hit-test by default

@dfleck, right those are definitely indirect manipulation.

I think the only possible justification for the stylus drag behavior 
(scrolling or text selection) is consistency with platform 
conventions.  On Windows dragging an on-screen stylus doesn't scroll 
but on Android it does.  So we should not try to over-specify this in 
the PE spec - it's a property of the underlying platform.

So perhaps we can just say that the platform conventions determine 
whether a pen is 'mouse-like' or 'touch-like', and then define the 
behaviors of those two models separately.
