Actually no. All those 3 parts are closer together then you think. And
if you search for dinput bugs you will get a whopping 16 open bugs. What
should be expanded is x11drv. It has 157 open bugs which could be
categorized better then that.

IMHO don't create any extra components until we really have a need for
it. As an example see rebar component which was created for Dan's effort
to get that part of the common controls fixed. However all bugs where
reclassified as wine-commtl32.
