This particular issue may only be the tip of the iceberg.

I suspect fixing the problem will require some significant changes to both specs in order to make them consistent with each other. In this particular case, it will most likely mean making the Pointer spec pointer type a subset of the EMMA device type. Making that change, however, will likely result in other changes as well.

Perhaps you can solve this problem by EMMA1.1 (still in WD phase) referencing the Pointer Event spec (Candidate Recommendation).
