Yeah, we had a bikeshed at one point about renaming `pointermove` to 
`pointerchange` since that was more accurate, but agreed that 
consistency with what IE shipped probably trumped that relatively 
minor concern.  These chorded scenarios are pretty niche already, I 
think most developers are better served by not having to really worry 
about them most of the time (in contrast to mouse events).  Still, I 
agree it's a little awkward and confusing. 

Updating the summary to reflect the conclusion of what needs to happen
