Touchstone: Has anyone removed the charging coil and put it in another tablet?

There are tons of Palm Touchstone (phone) hacks out there, using the charging receiver from a palm pre back in other devices. The Touchpad Touchstone uses a different tech/standard so the charging stand isn't backwards compatible with the old receivers. My Touchpad is at its end of life, and I'm considering removing the charging coil and circuit and transplanting it to another tablet so I can make use out of the Touchstone stand.

Has anyone attempted this? I looked at photos of a Touchpad teardown, and the charging coil looks easy to remove, but it appears to connect to a larger pcb via pogo pins. My fear is the charging circuitry (to put out 5v) is built into that large pcb and it might not be possible to separate.
