I will commit that part of the patch in a few days, unless somebody
raises objections.

We could make a special exception and say that floating docks float
above everything...

but I think you're right that onscreen keyboards deserve a separate
semantic type, if only to allow WM to implement the right focus
behaviour for them. I don't see how accessibility of the WM itself
relates to this, however. _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_ONSCREEN_KEYBOARD gets
my vote. 

Do you agree with replacing STATE_STAYS_ON_TOP with FLOATING with the 
semantics given in my patch ? 

If so, do you think we should add the opposite _NET_WM_STATE_DROWNING
(?) which would hint the wm to keep the window below other windows of
the same semantic type ?
