Why are you convinced there is input device fragmentation here?  My
understanding is that the spec as proposed already handles multi-axis
digital and analog controls so things you mentioned earlier like wheels and
3d mice would all "just work" along with gamepads and joysticks.

I could be misinformed, but it would be nice for you to be concrete about
precisely what parts of the spec are currently problematic.
