Pressure, buttons, tilt and other data is not available through the
standard input interface, these have to come from the extra xorg driver.

Ah-ha --- I saw ABS_PRESSURE in the evdev source without looking close
enough and jumped to the wrong conclusion.

   o Will the wacom driver(s) developers/maintainers know/care that
      kernel driver is going to use their protocol (and thus have a

The code is looking like it's a part of the wacom driver, so they should
know about it since they accepted the code.

Do you have a pointer to where this code is?  e.g. is it in a mainline
kernel already, or in some git repository somewhere?  (I must be looking
in all the wrong places, or, probably, I don't know what I'm looking for.)

This kernel driver is where future efforts should be directed, no?
