Thank you for your help,
In the end I decided to enable or disable it via 2 scripts that I launch using the scripter utility from rom toolbox.
Anyway here is what my impression are:
1. when pen mode is enabled the display becomes a 1-point touch screen, that is if you touch the screen before laying your pen or finger, any other touch following it is undetected
this also mean that if you lay your hand on the screen first, the stylus touching it or your finger will not be detected
the question is whether this is the same behaviour on the ultra,
because if the ultra is still multitouch with pen mode enabled and if the screen technology is the same of the z1, then there is still some unknown setting to tinker with, which might also improve writing performance
2. I noticed that without changing the screen sensitivity, the writing efficiency changes based on the # of the lead of a pencil, so your mileage may vary depending on the "stylus" that you use
3. I tried today to test some "professional" styluses such as adonit jot pro or similar, but I couldn' t because the shop where I went did not have any available to test before hand for buyers
I also asked if I could test the Ultra stylus, but when the shop assistant opened the box with me, we realized that the stylus (at least) in germany is not sold with the phone.
It would be interesting to test the pen mode on the z1 with either the ultra stylus or an adonit and see how good it goes
Does anybody in this forum have the chance to do something like that and let us know?

I found a couple of videos
This is the sony-made stylus for the ultra
In this italian video it is also said that it can write with a pencil without lead, more importantly it shows that while accepting pen input, the ultra still is multitouch, so maybe additional seetings have to be changed or maybe some software might be ported from the ultra to the z1
this other video shows a comparative test with different "styluses"
