Definition of "target" in "target size"

The proposed success criterion refers to "pointer inputs", but the definition of "target" then proceeds to discuss touch actions and to use the word "touch" repeatedly (see below). However, not all pointing devices are touch devices, and this leaves the proposal (read in combination with the definition) confusing.

This merits either clarification of the text or, perhaps in the shorter term, at least an editorial note.

The definition:
Target: Region of the display that will accept a touch action. If a portion of a touch target that does not perform the same action or go to the same page is overlapped by another touch target such that it cannot receive touch actions, then that portion is not considered a touch target for purposes of touch target measurements.
