I might have been confused myself by ABS_MT_BLOB_ID and SYN_MT_SLOT
here. What I meant by "more than one point" is a contact (or touch, I
am not sure which one is the right term :) is represented by a few
(x,y) coordinates. Maybe we should use SYN_MT_SLOT for my case?

This is what I needed to understand. Is slot for one (x,y) only or can
it also be used for more than one set of (x,y)?

Good to know that filtering has already been considered. I know I must
be out of sync with Henrik's goal. That's why I wanted to show my
ignorance :).
