And is it also safe to say that we need to continue to report
ABS_X/ABS_Y *and* those values need to always track 1st finger touch
for backwards compatibility?

It was brought up in thread but not stated as strong requirement.

BTW, there are patches in last couple months to x86-input-synaptics
that will allow it to ignore jumps in values of ABS_X/ABS_Y when
transition of multi-touch occur (both adding or removing fingers via
BTN_TOOL_*TAP). So one new-ish option is for ABS_X/ABS_Y to not track
1st finger but become average of 2 fingers.
