== pointerType: 'dial' ==
@jacobrossi, do you know if there are plans for the [Windows 
Wheel](https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/input-and-devices/windows-wheel-interactions)
 devices to emit pointer events?

This question may be a bit premature, since the [three 
presently-defined 
`pointerTypes`](https://w3c.github.io/pointerevents/#dom-pointerevent-pointertype)
 have all been commercially successful for quite some time; whereas, 
the Surface Dial is the first dial pointer I'm aware of to be broadly 
marketed.  Still, since it's one of the few fundamentally-new pointer 
types, specifying its behavior may be worthwhile.
