Hi Mat

One thought is you might want to add some consideration of games 
controllers that act as multiple switch devices and other progressive 
inputs? These aren't usually considerer to be "AT" as such but important 
for games and other experiences.

For example, I have some *very* old USB games controllers that appear to 
the OS as multiple USB HID switches. I'm not sure what the story is in 
browsers these days but when I tried things like standard or even custom 
events for these web side were just a dream.

The latest version of this is of course the new XBox Adaptive Controller.

There needs to be some way to map from HIDs to browser inputs I guess. 
Or does this just work now a days?

Steve
