You are right with this. Sorry if this was not quite clear. I do not
want to suggest to remove the feature entirely, but to postpone the
implementation for now.
My main point is that it does not hurt to first work on the other things
mentioned (eg. grabbing the input for normal palettes) before solving
the issue. Figuring how exactly events need to be handled directly after
the grab and during the grab doesn't seem to be easy.
The behaviour we are aiming for is unique; I don't know of any
application that does something similar, and for all I know, there could
be bugs in GDK that are also causing problems.
 I am thinking about client side windows here, though I don't know
whether these are involved in event processing.
