This could be extended for multitouch too, yeah?

Yes, but it would have a possibly annoying limitation of occlusion making the multi-touch fail at some positions. Fingers very close to the camera would appear huge and occlude everything else.

Sort of. Actual optical multitouch systems use multiple cameras, so fingers blocked by other fingers can be seen from other angles.
