Revoke also brings it own set of issues.

Since X isn't the only process listening to input devices, stuff like rfkill need to access the hw, and really don't want to be revoked, again you'd rather those apps didn't run as root either, but revoking would kill them all as well. Probably need some sort of capability for those daemons to allow them to avoid revoke, and then an evdev specific revoke ioctl could be used.

Isn't rfkill a kernel subsystem? I read that it *provides* switch state information, as opposed to consuming it. Is this right?
