IMO, showing the global-mode-string only once makes sense.
Having it in every window seems to be overkill.

So what about making the global-mode-string appear to the right in the
echo area when it is not in use for other purposes?

That (usually) empty line at the bottom of your screen could easily
show the time and battery status without too much eye strain...
