There are several problems with that fast-path approach.

1) If the mouse changes between the time of (fast) check and the time of render, it will be postponed by one frame interval. Not great for reactivity. Generally speaking, handling render timing differently with and without mouse events feels rather dangerous.

2) Some, if not all, mouse events cannot be merged. It's obvious for press and release. But it also applies for movement, if a filter checks for gestures.
