My idea is not that you should put point in the transient window and
navigate it as a regular buffer, but that the arrow keys would highlight
different emojis somehow, and that you can then press RET to insert the
highlighted one.  In this scenario, point would stay in the window you
ran `emoji-insert' from, just as before.  If that makes sense.

So I don't think it necessarily runs contrary to the fact that
transient.el is supposed to be modal.  Or maybe I'm missing something.

Nope.  So it might just be me, but I can see some users not generalizing
the knowledge of "C-g works everywhere" to "surely it works at this
screen that looks quite different to everything else, too".  Maybe?
I'm not sure.
