Giving the user more control over the mouse

Applications are able to do some things which could cause potential trouble:
- Making the mouse cursor invisible.
- Moving the mouse cursor to another location.
This could be a bit problematic for example if an application moves unexpectedly the mouse cursor at the time the user makes a click resulting in an unwanted action. On a fast thought maybe changing the mouse cursor and moving it could be limited only to the area of the application (maybe also requiring the application to have the focus and to be on the top layer or even requiring to be in fullscreen mode to do these actions). Such a solution would need probably an option to en-/disable this and/or to configure this in detail.
