I would object to this, as it can make the application entirely useless.
Imagine people who are using mousemove to focus. The menu bar is at A, the
window is at B, another window is at C, between A and B. So every time the
user moves the mouse to get to the menu bar, the menu bar will vanish on
the way as window C becomes focused, and the menu bar for B vanishes.

I had this with KDE, and this is one of the reasons that I dislike KDE.
(Yes, I know I don't have to drag them off) but this type of problem can
really put people off using an otherwise good system.
