I think the goal _is_ to not add any devices, yes.  Bumblebee is
basically a second X server to run on the nvidia gpu and pipe the pixels
off that to the integrated gpu.  So input only ever happens on the
integrated gpu's server, so you want to keep the bumblebee server away
from event devices.  (I think; I've never actually run it.)
