Re: [pointerevents] Reserved pointerIds for special cases (#343)

> This seems useful because mouse events are always tied to a single pointing device

in theory, i thought we wanted to allow multiple mice to be used at the same time (or at least, not limit it) - though in practice I think only something like X Window Manager actually allows this in practice (from what I heard, never tried it).

Instead of special-casing `pointerId == 1` for mouse (as I don't think it'd be good practice to encourage authors to start relying on *that* ... they should be checking `pointerType` and, if necessary, keeping track of whatever `pointerId` that event has), would it be possible to change the behaviour in Gecko to not use `0`, and to keep *that* value reserved for cases where the event came from a non-pointer device?
