I tested this and it isn't so easy to archive. Just disabling the pointer movement will not work, my suggestions is adding an option to hide the cursor like with a grab. Hiding will mean I just replace the current cursor with an empty cursor and vice versa. Will also reduce the need of tools like unclutter.

What do you think about this way?

Applied in changeset 007340c8917c.

I changed my mind about that, pointer doesn't follow e.g. gravity changes anymore, when click-to-focus is enabled.
