Excellent post Al---Very informative.  I work in the appliance industry and touch screens are the norm even for mid-range  equipment and up.   They are extremely popular and consumers expect them on product.  The following comment is HUGE to that market:

"One example is touchscreens for consumer electronics and similar devices. Touchscreens today are typically made using ITO on glass or an ITO film laminated to a glass cover. The drawbacks to glass for touchscreens are that it can shatter and glass can be heavy, especially in large size displays." 

One of the biggest problems we have is passing impact test and shattering glass. Of course, that failure renders the range or dishwasher  inoperable and can create really weird performance characteristics.  We have even had product go into self-clean after impact testing.  NOT GOOD!   This development certainly could be one answer if not the answer to that persistent problem.
