I agree that an integrated controller from the factory is the way to go (if available). But I have to disagree with your reasoning.
I highly doubt that the amount of voltage sent back to the trailer is based on a pedal-force sensor, and void of any data from the stability control, and other sensors? It's this host of sensors on most vehicles that has made it possible for integrated controllers to exist.
Did you mean brake pressure? I'm sure brake-line pressure is taken into account. But it goes beyond pressure. There have been pressure-based systems for a long time that were not as good (IMO) as an aftermarket Prodigy. But today's integrated systems are not simply force- or pressure-based.
