Anyway, I'd argue that the current situation is equally broken, and I've already been waiting for 4 months for someone who understands the XEN interrupt code to help out with this.  Am I supposed to just wait indefinitely?

No, because the upcoming changes to the i2c layer would not allow for it.  I suppose a compromise position would be "timer-driven polling of the HID device instead of I2C_F_POLL".  But honestly I'd almost rather just let it remain broken on Xen systems in order to set up the correct incentives for the folks who maintain the Xen support.
