OT1H you mention universal-prefix (which only affects the very next
command) but OTOH you say "all the cursor motion stuff ...".

For the "all the cursor ..." case, it seems you're saying all the
commands should operate on the other window, which is exactly what you
get after `C-x o`, so your description needs more details to know what
you really mean.

I don't think there's already what you want.
Gregory's code is a workable starting point for the "just the next
command" case.  Another direction might be the `vcursor.el` approach.
