I'd like to amend that with an exploratory idea:  supporting multitouch 
on all platforms.

macOS currently supports touch gestures via the trackpad, and both 
Windows and some Linux distros like Ubuntu and Mint support direct touch 
on screen.

If we're going to explore possible extensions for what we currently 
thing of as mouse messages, would it make sense to consider extending 
that further to support multitouch on all platforms, desktoo and mobile
