If I recall, Starcraft 2 Cress was banned for cheating across his multiple Blizzard and Twitch account(s) for using third-party software (macros, etc.) to make his XBOX 360 controller skit viable. I do not think he even denied or defended himself against the accusations or the account bans. He pretty much admitted he was playing the game in a modified/cheaty way, accepted the punishment and is moving on.

Anyways it seems like a much better alternative to playing with an FPS with a thumbstick.
It would, but it would also further reduce the accuracy on such a small track pad. This is not exactly a supped up laser-engine mouse gliding perfectly across a well-maintained awesome surface. Fingers are going to be a bit clumsy in comparison, and are going to introduce the surface to oils, sweat, and who knows what else. Let alone track pad burn, aches, etc. that some people suffer from when using them to much.
I think a thumb-stick as better/worse control device is a bit debatable depending on the execution. For instance, toss in some higher-resolution three-dimensional hall sensors with adjustable/higher motion-resistance (i.e. linear-motion higher-tension springs/coils) (movement precision), increased sensitivity as you close in on motion-peripheries (configurable), and a larger range of smooth-motion on the ball sockets (precision and larger range of control). Toss in a couple linear hall-sensors for triggers and so on. You will have a controller that will be very precise and comfortable (though maybe a bit more expensive in construction then silly track pads).
