[pointerevents] Pull Request: Major refactoring: refer to "direct manipulation" rather than "touch"

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

== Major refactoring: refer to "direct manipulation" rather than "touch" ==
This is admittedly slightly awkward, but necessary - as `touch-action` does not simply apply to touch, but any other situation where an input serves to directly scroll/zoom (e.g. stylus on touchscreen). Before, it was just a non-normative note, but  if we want to make this normative and require (for web compat) that UAs do this, it's probably the least-bad approach. (still leaves a bit of cognitive dissonance with the fact that the CSS property is called `touch-action`, but hey...)

Closes https://github.com/w3c/pointerevents/issues/202

Please take your time reviewing this, as it's probably quite a fundamental decision here. We should discuss this in the upcoming call(s).
