I think they do - they "own" the one that is present in the kernel itself :)
(this is the way any sane developer would do it)

The vendor ID is there: it's USB_VENDOR_ID_WACOM
One way to find the numeric value of that is to plug that identifier 
into http://lxr.free-electrons.com/ident - you'll see it's 056a
However, device support is done on a (vendor ID, product ID) combination 
  and you're correct in saying that there is no (0x56a,0x90) entry in 
the table.

Great! Can you put that information on the bug then please?

Ping Cheng is both a wacom and kernel developer. You just reported it to 
him, and he was already aware.
