Valve has been listening to the feedback they've been getting, including the complaints people have had about the lack of a proper digital, 4-way pad, and now they are set to replace the touchscreen on the controller with a set of 8 individual buttons. (source: Gamespot).

In other news, Valve's Anna Sweet tried to alleviate the concerns various parties have expressed and confirmed that their plan is to bring music, TV and movies on the platform in a streaming form, making it suitable for more than just gaming.

Wouldn't it be nice to have your controller be some sort of backbone that you could just connect anything onto?
If you want two analog joysticks, just put them where you want them like Legos.
You want a 4-way D pad on the left and a single stick on right, just put them on there.
Why hasn't anybody created this yet?

Cost and demand (or lack thereof). Not everything works well in a modular format.
