Sorry, I've missed David's explanation.

But nevertheless, IMHO your design is complex. Will it be easy to
explain to 70 years old person?

What about simply making alt-tab display grid of windows above
slightly grayed (full !) screen, where you can use alt-tab,
alt-shift-tab, mouse and whatever else? Seems simple to me, plus
efficient, because of either big window previews or big number of
windows displayed simultaneously.
