If this device truly supports HID protocol shouldn't we define i2c-hid
transport, similar to usbhid?

I merely follow defined by Microsoft.
It was called "HID OVER I2C" by Microsoft.
aspx) But I agree to change from hid i2c to i2chid.
Do you have any better opinions?

I am not sure we are talking about same thing... I do not really care
whether it is named "hid i2c" or "i2chid". What I meant if the device
really speaks HID protocol, except that the transport is not USB or
bluetooth but I2C, then instead of writing a custom driver for this
particular part we need to add a new HID transport into
drivers/hid/i2c-hid that is similar to drivers/hid/usbhid/ and reuse the
rest of HID framework along with hid- multitouch.c which handles
HID-compliant multitouch devices.

I am CCing Jiri (HID maintainer) for additional input.
Sorry! I misunderstood what you mean.
I fully agree with your suggestion. The I2CHID device will be more and more in the future. Need the new i2chid-driver that would cover all hid-compliant i2c-devices.
Thank you
