IMO it should, but it must be tested with proc (we use and compile only for 
acpid on SUSE).

You misunderstand me. Currently the addon is added if there is the key 
power_management.type=acpi (in 
fdi/policy/10osvendor/10-power-mgmt-policy.fdi) this is true if there 
is /proc/acpi/info (in fact this is also the case if there is /proc/acpi)

With this current settings it's really easy for the user/root to prevent 
loading the addon if you want to surrender acpi events (and reconnects ;) )
