Reintroduce XF86MiscSetGrabKeysState or some equivalent

After the reintroduction of AllowDeactivateGrabs and AllowClosedownGrabs, would it be possible to reintroduce XF86MiscSetGrabKeysState or some other way to achieve the same effect, namely that screensavers can opt out of their grab being "stolen"?
I find AllowDeactivateGrabs useful not only as a debugging feature (in my LibreOffice development work), but also a general protection against application bugs. E.g. sometimes my browser grabs the mouse and refuses to release it whatever I do. So I kinda would like to enable it on all my machines, but the security implications are harsh without XF86MiscSetGrabKeysState.
