I imagine if people had thought of one they would have done it ;-)

This is pretty basic laptop stuff, and since equivalent bugs haven't been reported on Windows and that generally I've never come across these problems, I would conclude that they've found a more effective way of implementing this.

The inhibit API is very new, newer than most of the stuff you mention. What I'd suggest is filing a bug against each app that does not inhibit when it should, with a link to the docs on how to use the inhibit API (or a patch that uses it, even better). This won't guarantee immediate results but should at least raise awareness and you'll probably see results on at least some of the bugs.
