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

Isn't two-finger-drag for scrolling and two-finger-taps for right-click a form of multitouch? Or are we talking about extending that to pinch, rotate, etc?
