Re: [pointerevents] Stylus eraser: should it be a new pointerType instead of a button state?

(accidentally answered by email on the PEWG list rather than here/to 
the github email, so copying the relevant part of my message)

I admit to not having played around with this too much with my Wacom 
tablet, but fundamentally I would still perceive the pen as being a 
single "pen" type even when flipped. Whether it's a flipped pen (like 
the Wacom stylus) or the pen in the same orientation but with the 
eraser button pressed (like on the Surface) seems more of a 
skeuomorphic gimmick / usability issue to me...the end result is still
 that the user wants to erase something with their pen.

I'm not sure if there are pens that have BOTH an eraser button AND can
 be used inverted.
