[pointerevents] Pull Request: Simplify/clarify coalesced and predicted events

patrickhlauke has just submitted a new pull request for https://github.com/w3c/pointerevents:

== Simplify/clarify coalesced and predicted events ==
* clearly list out properly what properties the coalesced/predicted events should have (more closely matching the suggested structure from https://github.com/w3c/pointerevents/issues/215)
* remove the "Populating and maintaining the coalesced and predicted event lists" part, which is more confusing than anything if the various steps (with the dirty flag etc) are essentially just browser-internal flags, and where it doesn't really matter where/when the targets are changed as authors can't observe this change. leave it up to implementations how they want to do it. they can just decide wholesale to set the target to the event where the `getCoalescedEvents`/`getPredictedEvents` methods are being called on - see https://github.com/w3c/pointerevents/pull/364#discussion_r623925897

Closes https://github.com/w3c/pointerevents/issues/370 https://github.com/w3c/pointerevents/issues/215
