Re: [pointerevents] Implement penover / pendown / penmove / penup events and similar for other new pointer types. (#359)

> In that linked example, for example, the preventDefault call prevents text selection with a mouse device (on Edge Chromium at least). That's the type of behavior I've always expected...has that changed?

I did retract my comment in the [latest comment](
To reiterate and be more accurate they are not passive (in the way that DOM spec says) as you can prevent default a pointerdown and it will cause the corresponding mouse events not to fire. But the default action of pointerevents has nothing to do with scrolling as already [specified]( in the PointerEvent spec. 

Regarding the text selection I believe that is the default action of mouse events (and by extension pointerevents that generate those mouseevents) which are either specific behavior of Chrome (or other browsers) or if it is spec'ed it should be in uievents spec.
