Re: [pointerevents] When to continue firing pointer events after a drag operation?

[spec](http://w3c.github.io/html/editing.html#drag-and-drop-processing-model) says "From the moment that the user agent is to initiate the drag-and-drop operation, until the end of the drag-and-drop operation, device input events (e.g., mouse and keyboard events) must be suppressed." This answers my first question about when to continue firing pointer events.

Regarding boundary events, Edge fires boundary events after dragstart but Chrome doesn't. [Spec](https://w3c.github.io/pointerevents/#the-pointercancel-event) says "After firing the pointercancel event, a user agent MUST also fire a pointer event named pointerout followed by firing a pointer event named pointerleave."
