I think one thing that *would* be nice would be to ensure that the same transducer always gets the same pointerId across interactions (not the same as the TSN, but unique for the duration of the browser/tab session)

Perhaps stating the obvious - but - the idea is that I can upload into my stylus my preferred color (I like purple because it’s a corporate color) and width (I tend to write small so I like a fine tip pen) and where-ever (any application) whenever (even tomorrow) I will get those settings by default.
