Re: [pointerevents] Add deviceProperties.uniqueId to PointerEvent spec (#495)

While discussing the concerns, this seemed like a neat way to avoid having a second identifier with slightly different semantics and a convenient way for developers to use it without having to create a map of their own.

@ogerchikov Yes, that's correct.

> It's possible that we'll need to collect other hardware properties from the devices that don't have persistent IDs, and as a result, they won't have .deviceProperties instantiated. Is there something I'm overlooking?

 If this information is not associated with a uniquely identifiable pointer, then it wouldn't belong in deviceProperties. If it is, then presumably it wouldn't be known until the persistent id was also known, right?
