I've indeed read this page before, and it's really informative. For
Wacom users we also have https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wacom.fdi.
Anyway, the file is also already shipped by xserver-xorg-input-wacom.

However, I fail to see how this page would address any of the problems
pointed in my precedent email.
