Doug put out a proposal that was low level and included gesture recognition
and he state that this was not the higher level events. There is nothing to
clarify with respect to touch interfaces.  Doug's clear words regarding the
touch events specification:

What would be of help would be to clarify whether the "high level events"
is somehow tied to what you are doing. If not it would be very helpful if
it were so that we do not have two specs. trying to do the same thing.

I know you three understand, but I needed to clarify because you copied a
public list. Due to Doug's previous proposals which included gesture
recognition and other touch interface standardization which we've expressed
concerns about, I just needed to make it clear that our work is unrelated.

Doug refers to you as high-level events and your proposal?
