it was in an earlier, pre-release version, while it was still under
discussion. Look for the thread with the subject 
"[PATCH wayland-protocols] Add the tablet protocol" on 6 Nov 2014. That
still had an enum in it. Removed in 
"[PATCH v3 wayland-protocols] Add the tablet protocol" from 29 Jan 2016.
