IMO, the d*remainders have the right normalization, but the wrong 
visibility. As I view things, they are an implementation artifact to the 
acceleration and should have less exposure.
My completely uninformed suggestion would therefore be to add valuators 
to the devprivates system (or vice versa, you get the idea) in the next 
release. Is that overkill?

Alternatively, I'd make last[xy] and d[xy]remaind valuator members work 
like axisVal, because that's how it should be. OK, I'm yet to see a 5D 
mouse, and that alone would not solve the visiblity problem.
