So you are thinking something like `(rawX,rawY)`?  Do we have trackpads with hardware+driver support for it?

Moreover, we would need OS support to tie the mouse cursor position with the trackpad finger position because it would be a terrible UI if the drawing is off from visible mouse cursor position (`(rawX,rawY)` vs `(x,y)`).  Then there is the question of input/output precision because if the trackpad rectangle maps to a big screen, every pixel in the screen should be reachable through a finger position.

Perhaps the native apps you mentioned have the answers.  Please provide some details.
