Re: [pointerevents] Mouse back/forward buttons: page navigation or JS events?

In general there isn't really consistency when default handling of mouse "actions" happens.
contextmenu for example is platform specific. On Windows it happens on mouseup, elsewhere it is mousedown. At least web extension authors prefer the Windows model.
If default action for pointerdown [buttons 4 or 5] was navigation, pointerup would easily end up to a different page (especially on browsers which have bfcache). So perhaps default action on *up would be better.
