Re: [pointerevents] touch-action: disable webview swipe back behavior (#358)

As a PWA and hybrid mobile app developer, I don't have much to offer on this issue other than, "Yes, 100%, we need this." 

The inability to tame the browser's native transitions for installed websites is one of the biggest ways in which PWAs break the "third wall" and reveal their true nature to users. It screams "This is a website!" when you swipe back and the whole app shudders backwards in strange ways, like the screen sliding off to the right on iOS when the app's native transition wants to be a fade out/down, etc.

Same on Android which implements the swipe back in several unique ways. None of which are generally used for app transitions.
