No, that's what multi-pointer means.  Multi-Pointer X is already in
F12.

I'm sure you can achieve this gesture support today, again using MPX
in F12.

Multitouch refers to technologies that involve extrapolating from
motion of finger-shaped blobs on your input device to the idea that
a user has performed some continuous motion with said finger(s), and
reacting appropriately.  It's not the same as multi-pointer X, but it
does use the same core technology.
