I agree that there is no explicit statement about this. However, this 
section
https://w3c.github.io/pointerevents/#dfn-the-primary-pointer

implies that for example for touch:
A pointer representing touch input is considered the primary touch 
input if its pointerdown event was dispatched when no other active 
pointers representing touch input existed.

which I guess prevents the promotion of any existing event to new 
primary. Also the last note in this section tries to bring up the case
 that user agent can fire pointer events in which no pointer is marked
 as a primary pointer. Maybe we can reword that note to add the 
scenario you are mentioning as well?
