I did this lately with my sonypi driver and yes, using the event keyboard
driver does permit having multiple keyboards with X.

Unfortunately, it also seems that the XKB layout is common for all
keyboards, meaning that the last keyboard defined in xorg.conf
overrides the layout for *each* keyboard.
