Having implemented something of that ilk in user-space (we
automatically disable touch devices when the associated screen is
turned off/suspended), I think this might need more thought.

What happens when a device is opened and the device disabled through
sysfs, are the users revoked?

Does this put the device in suspend in the same way that closing the
device's last user does?

Is this not better implemented in user-space at the session level,
where it knows about which output corresponds to which input device?

Is this useful enough to disable misbehaving devices on hardware, so
that the device is not effective on boot?
