Hmm... you didn't touch on this part of the document:

And what ACPI video driver does is:
actual_brightness: on read, control method _BQC will be evaluated to
get the brightness level the firmware thinks it is at;
bl_power: not implemented, will set the current brightness instead;
brightness: on write, control method _BCM will run to set the requested
brightness level;
max_brightness: Derived from the _BCL package(see below);
type: firmware

You should touch it. My suggestion here is:

Perhaps making this as a table would work better:

input device it created:

===== ===================
event keycode

0x86 KEY_BRIGHTNESSUP
0x87 KEY_BRIGHTNESSDOWN
etc.
