I should add that this seems important for Facebook.  They've had to go back to using non-passive touch listeners in order to support their "Like" button where you can still scroll by starting on the button, but if you long-press it you get additional options for your "reaction". That's apparently the only case keeping Facebook from getting non-blocking scrolling, and (given the large amount of scrolling that occurs on Facebook) this makes it pretty urgent for the Chrome team.  We might have a touch-event-specific workaround (/cc @dtapuska) but it would still be a shame if such scenarios required touch events because they were entirely impossible with pointer events.
