It may even happen to send an out-of-range value for one axis, but a
valid value for another axis. The code should be prepared for that
(ignore one, but keep the other).

In this case what should be used for the "invalid" axis value? The previous value?

I haven't tested that on Windows (yet), so I don't know how it
behaves. If I test it, I'll post my results here.

I've modified the firmware of my device to do some more tests. I've modified it to send invalid values in X axis, but keep Y axis with valid values.

In Linux, the pointer moved to the right-most position of the screen (which is consistent with the behavior I previously described), not ignoring the out-of-range value.

In Windows, the pointer moved to the left-most position of the screen. It means Windows can't send a movement of only one axis, and fills the other axis with zero when receiving an invalid value. This behavior doesn't seem very helpful.

If anyone cares, this was the firmware modification for this test:
