I love the concept of allowing for different `touch-action` like behaviors for each type of pointer, but am opposed to having new `*-action` values because of the unbounded nature of future pointer types. 

This feels like the exact sort of reason `@media` blocks were invented. What about 

```css
@media(pointer-type: touch) {
  #carousel {
    pointer-action: pan-y
  }
}

@media(pointer-type: pen) {
  #carousel {
    pointer-action: none
  }
}
```
