I'm beginning to come to that conclusion too.
extract the Z-axis information from the wsmouse device, but then
essentially discards everything but the direction of motion.
There is another X11 input device, a tablet which does manage to pass
3-extra axis of information to the client (pressure, x-tilt, y-tilt).
I may try hacking my local copy of the xfree code to put the mouse's
z-axis into the "pressure" slot and calling the tablet output code.
I'm very surprised that nobody has done anything like this yet.
