Who says you can't? AFAICT the great thing in the new xorg is that you
don't _have_ to put settings there, but you can all right.

There was much discussion because of lack of out-of-the-box support for
Wacom tablets [1] and the solution is to edit xorg.conf [2], so I'd be
surprised if it was different for touchpads.

I don't change my touchpad config, so I cannot really help much, but
maybe this page can be a place to start (though it does not go into
xorg.conf details):
