I am releasing a comprehensive framework via a slightly modified MIT license called Typhon for real time app/game dev Q1 this year. Typhon4Android includes many additional resources for being able to define input controls and even built in input control configuration so developers don't have to build this themselves and users will have a nice standard way to define key and other controls (touch or acceleration sensitivity, etc). An additional configuration file is used with Typhon that can define key defaults and other parameters filtered by OS version, device family, and/or specific device. This way an app built with Typhon can have reasonable defaults 1st time the user opens it up. One of the neat features of Typhon is the ability for end users to crowdsource input configurations for a given device then submit their configuration along with device info via web service to a database that will run on www.typhon4android.org. Developers can turn off this feature, but I'll have it turned on in the tutorial demo suite/apps for Typhon. This will be an open database for any developer to grab key and other configuration such as input sources like dpad or trackball for the larger ecosystem of devices. In addition the Typhon4Android site is going to feature some great 2D/3D gaming resources and a series of comprehensive tutorials.
So yes what you are searching for is coming and it'll be available for all to use and contribute to... soon..
