I do not follow. If user's xorg.conf does not use /dev/input/mice and
does not use "kbd" driver then grabbing is not required, is it? Now,
as far as I understand, lack of hotplug support in X is the main
obstacle for removing "mouse" and "kbd" drivers, correct?

I guess keyboard and mousedev will have to be flagged as such in kernel.
