    Needs live example. Check accuracy. Need editing.

    Questions: 
    --Is pointer-events exclusive to mouse events? 
    w3.org on pointer devices:
    Many systems support pointer devices such as a mouse or trackball. On
    systems which use a mouse, pointer events consist of actions such as
    mouse movements and mouse clicks. On systems with a different pointer
    device, the pointing device often emulates the behavior of the mouse by
    providing a mechanism for equivalent user actions, such as a button to
    press which is equivalent to a mouse click.
    --How does pointer-event processing work when visibility 
    isn't taken into account? 
    In the introduction, it would be good to 
    contrast the visible values from the values that do not take
    visibility into account, for example, when painted value 
    is applied to an element rather than visiblePainted. 
    The following statement from here makes me a bit confused as to how
    elements that aren't visible could still be targets of a mouse event:

    <wbr><wbr>

    "When an element is not displayed (i.e., when the ‘display’ property 
    on that element or one of its ancestors has a value of none), 
    that element cannot be the target of
    pointer events."
