jakearchibald has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/pointerevents:

== Should events queue a task? ==
https://w3c.github.io/pointerevents/#the-pointermove-event - because the event is dispatched when "a pointer changes coordinates", it doesn't really fit in with the event loop.

Ideally the spec should queue a task for event dispatching, which clarifies:

* What happens if there are many pointer events in the queue - can the browser update rendering in between them? If not, the spec should queue a single callback to dispatch the events that must happen before rendering.
* Should/may the browser queue multiple pointermove events for a given frame?
