I tried to some up the decision that the people were inclined to in my last comment. Basically we would like to have:

- `pointercancel` will be dispatched immediately before `dragstart`.
- If there was a pointer capture in place drag operation never starts (i.e. `dragstart` is never dispatched)

However, this is not what Edge does. I believe in Edge if drag starts there will be a lostpointercapture after a few drag events and there is no pointercancel either. So we were wondering if the solution above would be something reasonable as is it something you can change Edge to match.
