Are there touchscreens which report finger/touch width / height ? if so
then it probably does make sense. Note that for historical reasons
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/input/touchscreen/touchscreen.txt

Also the touchscreen bindings have: touchscreen-x-mm and touchscreen-y-mm
rather then res, which can then be used to calculate the resolution.
