patrickhlauke has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/pointerevents:

== What happens when an isPrimary pointer is removed? ==
Currently the spec does not explain what would happen if an isPrimary 
pointer is removed.
The scenario would be: imagine more than one touch pointer in the 
document, one of which isPrimary; the user lifts the primary finger, 
and that pointer disappears. Should the touch that came after the 
isPrimary one be promoted to now being the new primary?
My hunch would be that no, as at the start of the gesture/interaction,
 no new primary should be promoted/elected. This is not, however, made
 explicit (or even implicit) in the spec to date.
