yes it is possible. vmware does (per remote X also).

I had a quick look at the sources of XFree86 and there was the
possibility to grab the keyboard exclusive. I don't rember what it was

The only key which isn't catched is MAGIC SYSRQ, I think.

Many people do so, but I think the vmware way is the easier to use.
