[whatwg] hit regions: type of events that are intercepted

The current hit region specification doesn't state what events are routed
to the fallback content.
Probably only mouse and touch events should be intercepted and forwarded.

Thinking a bit more about this feature, it's a bit weird how events are
rerouted. Does this happen in any other place in the browser?
For instance, if the fallback is an edit control and the user drag-selects
some text on the canvas, is it expected that this text is also selected in
the edit control?
