(From update of attachment 46905)
I don't think we want to add the feature at this point to the mainline WebKit

- The touch event API is completely new and not yet standardized. I think it is
better to have a compact API covering the most important use cases first and
gain some experience before piling in new features.
- Use cases for the feature are not clear so it is hard to evaluate the
proposed API. If the main use of the feature is obtaining the strength of the
press, would it be better to express that directly as a single number? If the
touch shape is really important isn't an axis-aligned bounding rect too coarse
grained way of describing it?
- Platform support is limited (per comments above Android can't do it for
- As zecke pointed out, the concept of point bounds is nonsensical.

r- on these grounds.
