Button and TouchEvents

Hello all,

while messing around with touch events I found out that Buttons rely 
solely on mouse events. Although the documentation of the button class 
explicitly says that the onAction method is fired upon touch events, the 
only reason why this works is because the platform fires synthesized 
mouse events for each touch event that reach the button. Then the 
mouseReleased method in the behavior class invokes the Action event. 
Shouldn't there be a separate handling for touch events here and the 
handling for mouse events only done when the isSynthesized flag of the 
mouse events is set to false?

Kind regards,
Sebastian Rheinnecker
