Nicely put.
I have a tablet that I use from time to time and it would be sad if things stopped working. The question is, can Wacom do something about it or is it a pure matter of Qt or GTK?
And when the wacoms are broken then probably the others are too.

And it is not even just krita, GIMP or inkscape which would benefit from working tablets, these newer tablets can also act like touchpads.
