Alas, it fails in more than that one way.

    (define-key input-decode-map (kbd "<f5> <f5>") [])

    <f5> (wait 1s)
    → f5-

    <f5> (again)
    → f5 f5-

i.e., although we are in the start state, the echo area contains the
last path that led to it;

    <f5> (third time)
    → f5-

    C-g
    → <f5> C-g is undefined

After that it breaks:

    <f5> (and wait 1s again)
    → (nothing happens) <f5> C-g is undefined

    x
    → <f5> x is undefined

i.e. it “heard” the <f5> but did not echo it.

Also:

    ESC (and wait 1s)
    → ESC-

    <f5>
    → ESC f5-

    <f5>
    →

The echo area clears but the current prefix is ESC:

    C-g
    → C-M-g is undefined


Do we have anything resembling a feature specification for echoing?
Automated tests? Even just a mechanism for testing key sequence
reading and echoing?

I see a file, test/src/keyboard-tests.el. I see there is a mechanism
to feed keystrokes, either immediately or on a timer. I will look if
these can be used to exercise the echoing code path.
