@NavidZ The actual processing model fires a non-bubbling event.  
Specifically, 
https://w3c.github.io/pointerevents/#the-gotpointercapture-event says 
to 
https://w3c.github.io/pointerevents/#firing-events-using-the-pointerevent-interface
 which will call into https://dom.spec.whatwg.org/#concept-event-fire 
which by default fires a non-bubbling event.  There is no mention of 
setting "bubbles" to true in 
<https://w3c.github.io/pointerevents/#firing-events-using-the-pointerevent-interface>.

The table you link to has no obvious normative status that I can see, 
in the sense that it's not clear how to actually apply the data in 
that table to anything.

If the spec is wrong and the event should actually be bubbling, please
 fix the spec.
