Yes, but that won't work since it's the application that the exception has
to track, not the driver.

I'm not saying it does not work, I'm saying I don't want my users to
fool with kernel modules when we know the default should not be HID for
huey right now. If you prefer enhancing the kernel HID driver, and
switching argyll to it, just do it. I don't care as long as I don't have
to maintain workarounds distro-side.

I guess I'm still not following you. The user doesn't directly fool with
the kernel module, the application (which knows about the device better
than the kernel, and knows how it wants to drive the device) makes
that decision. This is the correct place for it to happen, as nothing
else knows enough about the particular device.
