[OpenLayers-Dev] Touch events do not trigger the defalut action in attribution links

I stumbled upon an IMHO unwanted behaviour in OpenLayers when it is
being accessed with devices that issue touch events (smartphones and
tablets both with iOS or Android):
When an attribution of a layer contains a link (an <a
href="http://example.com/">Text</a>) the link does not work, e.g. it
does not follow the links href and does not open the appropriate URL.
This can easily be observed in the online examples, e.g. here:
http://openlayers.org/dev/examples/osm.html (the link to the osm page is
not functional on touch devices).
The behaviour can also be observed from mwithin Chrome when the
"User-Agent" setting " Emulate touch events" of the developer toolbar is
I would consider this behaviour a bug and would like to hear your opinions.
The IMHO wrong behaviour was introduced after 2.11, as the example
working as expected.
If needed I can file an issue on github.
