3. What is the nature and description of the request?
Customer is requesting to add support for the Wacom Intuos 5 tablet in RHEL 6. 

4. Why does the customer need this? (List the business requirements here)
Wacom just released their Intuos 5 tablet and there is a lot of interest in using
this at Customer.  They would like to see support for this device in RHEL 6. 

5. How would the customer like to achieve this? (List the functional requirements here)
Add support for Wacom Intuos 5 Tablets in RHEL 6.

6. For each functional requirement listed in question 5, specify how Red Hat and the customer can test to confirm the requirement is successfully implemented.
Since we do not have one of these devices in house we would have to rely on
customer testing (and/or get one of the devices) unless our developer relations have been solidified with Wacom directly.  

7. Is there already an existing RFE upstream or in Red Hat bugzilla?

8. Does the customer have any specific timeline dependencies?
RHEL 6.4 is the desired release.  

9. Is the sales team involved in this request and do they have any additional input?

10. List any affected packages or components.
X driver

11. Would the customer be able to assist in testing this functionality if implemented?
