Re: [pointerevents] PointerEvents should have fractional coordinates

In our call today I said I'd file a bug on UI Events to adopt the 
`double` values.  There's already a bug at, but I don't think we can 
quite claim that implementations match this yet.

In Chrome, `(new MouseEvent('mousedown',{clientX:5.5})).clientX` still
 returns 5 (though @mustaqahmed is [fixing 

In Edge, even `(new 
PointerEvent('pointerdown',{clientX:5.5})).clientX`returns 5 (but 5.5 
as expected in Chrome).  What's up with that @teddink, surely that's 
just a bug (given that the browser itself does generate events with 
non-integer co-ordinates) right?

So let's wait until we've got at least these implementation issues 
addressed and behaving consistently between Edge and Chrome before we 
push to adopt the IDL change into the UI Events spec.

WebKit and Gecko still use `long`, not `double` in their MouseEvent
