Keymap issues with Pointer+Keys device

since MPX was merged there are problems generating keys with the joystick 
driver. The joystick driver acts as both a keyboard (with an own keymap) and 
a pointer. 

The device is attached to the core pointer device. On keypress the keymap of 
the device is copied to the core pointer device, but the core keyboard 
device's keymap is used for keysym lookup.

Should the driver rather create two devices, one for pointer and one for keys? 
Or is GetKeyboardValuatorEvents supposed to attach the device to the core 
keyboard on key press, and GetPointerEvents to attach it to the core pointer 
on button press / motion?
