Have you considered extending `touch-action` to allow values based on pointer type?

Perhaps something similar to `linear-gradient`:

touch-action: "auto", some-other-keyword("none", "pen");

Not sure what would be a good name for `some-other-keyword`, but the idea is that it would take the `touch-action` value and then a list of pointer types. Some other syntax could be used as well. I'm just a little nervous about adding a type-specific property when Pointer Events is all about type abstraction.
