I am not sure, but I think the staff contacts ought to discuss this.  We perhaps should have a session at TPAC where we talk about the increasing leakiness of the 'virtual pointer/virtual keyboard' logical interface.  People are talking about speech input as well (what do those who cannot talk do?).

Our current input model is of a logical keyboard and logical pointing device, but these can be physically instantiated in a number of ways (e.g. typing by voice recognition, pointing by keyboard keys).  We have concepts like 'focus' and 'enter characters'.
