As with all proposed features, I'm principally interested in measures of
cost and benefit like:

  [resources]    - What kind of expertise is necessary to accomplish the
                   work and is this expertise abundant or scarce in our

  [interference] - Does the primary work interfere with the correct
                   functioning of other subsystems or is it genuinely

  [scope]        - How long is the critical path of changes that must be
                   made in order to deliver a prototype of the feature?
  [quality]      - If we prototyped such a feature, what work might be
                   necessary to bring it to a releasable condition?

  [utility]      - Can it be _relied upon_ as a fail-safe "backup plan"
                   for people experiencing touchpad/touchpad-software
