I should note that I do have an application in the oven that could serve as
a usecase study for non fullscreen pointerlock UX/issues (it uses
pointerlock in different portions of its functionality to improve
usability).

It's currently not ready for release, but upon request I can arrange for a
personal preview, and I plan to make a first release soon.
