Camera phones as mice

This is cool, although I don't see why it's limited to just spotcodes. Theoretically, I think you could apply the same algorithms that are used in optical mice to make camera phones work as input devices. You couldn't use them as traditional mice (unless you placed it on a self-illuminating surface such as a display), but you could detect rotations and (and to a lesser extent, translations) in three dimensions. Thoughts?
