Hi Chaals, Jonathan,

Input devices are currently not in the DAP charter.
http://www.w3.org/2009/05/DeviceAPICharter.html

I am not sure whether the charter is to change soon, although it should be possible, I think.

Thanks.

Kind regards,
Marcin

This is among the things that the Device API group is expected to cover
with new APIs for such capabilities.
