Steps to reproduce

Edge ships with support of https://drafts.csswg.org/mediaqueries-4/#mf-interaction but they don’t behave as they should on detachable or convertible devices. When you detach/flip the keyboard/mouse there is no more mouse/trackpad therefore any-pointer and pointer should have the “coarse” value only. Edge always returns "fine".

Chrome is affected by the bug as well but I’m working on fixing it. See the discussion here :
https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/forum/#!topic/input-dev/ZBs3tSCMhYw and proposed patch https://codereview.chromium.org/2737123003/#ps20001.

Feel free to reach me/chrome to align the behavior.
