Using touch screens with FPS

Has anyone tried using a touch screen monitor with CoD:BO? Is it possible? How does it compare with using a mouse? Does it turn the game into a bit of a whack-a-mole kind of game, constantly just trying to poke enemies that you see on the screen?
I imagine that it would be difficult because you've now tied up an entire hand with just aiming (and possibly pulling the trigger). On my mouse I have enough buttons to aim, shoot, grenade, knife, ADS, and switch weapons. I don't know how you could manage all of that with a touch screen set-up. Or could you play "bare bones", basically trading off the ability to grenade, switch weapons, ADS, and knife so that you would only be shooting but be able to use the touch screen for that.
If anyone has experience doing this with other FPSs I'd be interested in hearing about that as well. I don't plan on actually trying this set-up, but I am curious if others out there are doing it.
Only games designed specifically for use with touchscreen have any chances to work with it.
I really don't see any way how you'd play FPS on touch screen, given that in FPS the crosshair is always in center of the screen, while mouse rotates the view. In case of games designed for touch screens, the view is fixed, while cross hair follows your finger.
Apart of that, in case of CoD:BO, for full control you need 23 different actions triggered by buttons (either mouse or keyboard). There is no way to do that on touch screen.
