Related notes:

I am moving this issue to Open since a) our discussion on March 29 indicates we agree this is an issue; and b) we need to formally record consensus on the interface names

In our 2011-04-26 call, we resolved to rename the "TouchPoint" interface to "Touch" for compatibility with existing public content. Committed the change:
