    To answer the questions:

    * arrow keys move normally through the file as if the overlay
      window was not there
    * arrow keys don't move into the file, nor do they move outside
      the file once the window get the focus
    * arrow keys behave just as normally as they do in a files, the
      context is switched by pressing with a mouse

In that case, it would be easy to implement this at the display level.

    Of course, just because Brackets does it one way or another, does
    not mean Emacs has to do same way.

That is true.  But if that is what people find useful, we may as well
do that.
