The motivation, as I understand it, is to bring the minibuffer closer
to the focus of user’s attention, which is in the selected window.

An easy workaround is to use multiple frames (perhaps with a tiling
window manager), each of which would by default have a minibuffer.

I actually do this with a pre-4k (24″ 16:10 1920×1200) monitor,
splitting it into left and right halves. When working on code, I
frequently have both halves occupied with Emacs frames (each of which
may be further split into the top and bottom windows).

This can probably be solved the same way they choose a minibuffer when
multiple frames are involved.
