Re: [pointerevents] Should pressure be set to 1 or .5 on devices that don't report it?

Thanks @dfleck for your comments from the perspective of existing 
apps. If Wacom products replace unknown pressure with sensible values 
to make apps work, it is reasonable to assume that any other 
competitive products will do the same, right? The same argument holds 
for OS-level normalization too I guess. This implies that a new 
InputDeviceCapabilities entry is the best (and only?) way to expose 
missing-pressure info. I filed a new bug for InputDeviceCapabilities 
to track this.

Is it fair to say we can close this PointerEvent issue now? Given that
 the default 0.5 was added to the spec [several years 
ago](https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=20109), and is 
available to web developers through IE/Edge for some years already, 
changing the default now may not be compat-friendly anyway. 

@appsforartists?
