Nintendo DS thumbstrap

The kids over at IGN got their hands on an early-release Nintendo DS handheld gaming machine, and they seem both excited and perplexed.  You see, the DS comes with a thumbstrap to allow players to use the touchscreen without greasing it up.  Interesting, though, that the game that comes with the DS isn't stylus-oriented.  Rather, they're using the touchscreen as a thumb controller, sort of like an analog stick.  Will the DS touchscreen become more of a thumb-screen, like a big joystick, instead of the stylus screen we all imagined?  Based on the game lineup, it seems this may be possible.
