Thanks, sounds good to me. I see and agree with your changes listed here

I have modified the pointer lock spec to not bubble the events.

Pointer lock does use the concept of the sandboxed pointer lock browsing
context flag "allow-pointer-lock"[2], which has been included in whatwg
living HTML.

I'm neutral on the potential argument of defining the sandbox flag inline
as well, it is mentioned & referenced in the pointer lock specification.

This should conclude this thread, "onpointerlockchange/onpointerlockerror
properties defined in the spec".
