I think, a real in-kernel driver for HID Power devices, which exports
the device as a "power_supply" device to userspace, would be nice.

That way, USB UPS's which support the HID Power devices:
http://www.usb.org/developers/devclass_docs/pdcv10.pdf

would show up like any other battery and AC connector and userspace
could handle all of them without any specialized code:
ls -1 /sys/class/power_supply/BAT0/
alarm
energy_full
energy_full_design
energy_now
manufacturer
model_name
power
present
serial_number
status
technology
type
voltage_min_design
voltage_now
...

Thanks,
Kay
