[pointerevents] Would pointerType === 'pen' events participate in HTML5 Drag & Drop?

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

== Would pointerType === 'pen' events participate in HTML5 Drag & Drop? ==
## Overview

Would `PointerEvent` events send by a `pointerType === 'pen'` still be able to participate in [HTML5 Drag & Drop][1] behaviours?

## Use case.

A user is using his Pen tablet to draw doodles in a canonical HTML5 Canvas whiteboard-style app. The app also has a Shape library where users can drag/drop shapes from onto the canvas. Would `pen` events still participate in that behaviour?

## Reason for asking

Chrome 59 seems to have a bug with Pen events, see [this Chromium bug][2] for more info, so we can't really test this assertion there. 

Chrome 61 (dev channel) doesn't seem to have that bug and pens work as expected, however they don't seem to work on HTML5 Drag/Drop behaviours.
