Feature Request: Design of Mouse pointer integration

Host=Win-Vista, Guest=Win-XP The Guest Additions mouse pointer integration seems to be a bit dirty or at least incomplete. A real Windows always moves the visible mouse pointer regardless which one of the multiple mouse or trackpad connected to it is used. But with Guest additions and an USB mouse attached to Guest directly, the visible mouse pointer is not moved by that USB mouse, but only the (invisible) hot spot is moved. I did not test whether user applications positioning the mouse pointer see the same non-responsiveness.
Yes, to me it makes sense to give Guest its own mouse and keyboard. I do not expect to move the mouse pointer outside of Guest working area using this USB mouse.
