Re: [pointerevents] Could we ever do implicit capture for all pointer types? (#125)

Discussed at PEWG meeting today. In summary, feels like a breaking change that may be too late to do now. Current implicit capture just for touch makes sense due to touch interface problems of single finger used for activation and scrolling etc. Authors used to it from touch events. But for mouse, this implicit capture would be unusual. Not a big ask for mouse to require authors to explicitly capture, particularly since they're used to having to do horrible hacks to do this with mouse events (attaching handlers for mousemove on body on mousedown, removing on mouseup) at least it makes it nicer in PE.

Consider closing this unless we hear strong support from @NavidZ @mustaqahmed or others
