Yeah, IIRC there are various proposals floating around.

multitouch in XI2 will probably have to wait at least for xserver 1.11.
Driver support likely at the same time.  Apps/toolkits, OTOH, I have no
idea.  I'm not sure what sort of kludge xf86-input-multitouch is using
to get MT data to clients.  Maybe it doesn't, and just handles gesture
recognition in the driver?
