Other people, myself included, have different expectations.  Yours may 
be more common among users of enter-exit focus combined with pointer 
warping.  In contrast, enter-click mode is intended to be used without 
warping.  Then it is better that focus does not follow the pointer quite 
so strictly.

It might make sense to make enter-exit mode work like you suggest while 
keeping the other focus modes as they are now.

There is that bug with enter-root not ignoring grab-related events.
