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

== offsetX/offsetY is confusing for GetCoalescedEvents ==
See [this chromium bug](https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=721485) and the [definition](https://drafts.csswg.org/cssom-view/#dom-mouseevent-offsetx) of `offsetX`/`offsetY`.

Since an important use case of `GetCoalescedEvents` is to re-use (and share) existing code, perhaps we really should try harder to make these events look just like normal events?  Eg. copy the `target`, and set the "dispatch flag" so that `offsetX`/`offsetY` get computed relative to the target?
