Steps to reproduce

If a page calls SetPointerCapture inside the handler for PointerDown then the GotPointerCapture event is fired immediately. The spec states that it would be delayed until the next pointer event.

Along the same lines, LostPointerCapture is always delayed, but should be immediate in the case of pointerup/pointercancel causing the capture to be lost.
