Yes, sorry, I was unclear. My trouble is usually to get the palm detection to
correctly detect my palm, and not incorrectly detect my finger(s) -- right-click
is usually emulated by a two-finger tap, to make things more difficult.

Okay, no problem, I just wanted to be sure. :)

I agree.

There is probably a fair middle to strike there, and a lot has happened already
in that direction. I don't know if it is something which can (let
alone should) be
forced by us or the head-of-UI at big-tech, or rather something which happens
naturally -- very much like a language, as you point out.
