For issue 456 I think the language of this SC oversteps its original
intention. My recollection is that we wanted to ensure all functionality
could be operated *Without* multi point or timed gestures. However this SC
language is requiring that all functionality be usable with a mouse
(pointer) .

Early on I floated an SC to require everything be usable with a mouse
(pointer) but it didn't go very far which was ok with me.

The consensus to my understanding is that WCAG 2.1 won't be requiring all
functions to be operable with a mouse (pointer), but here it is.

My proposal roll the requirement of the SC back to something like this:

> All functionality which requires multipoint or timed gestures for
operation, can be operated with a single untimed pointer gesture unless a
multipoint or timed gesture is essential.
