So, since I am not the only person who cares: I went looking, and found two

First, the translation is stored in a *copy* of `ns-alternatives-map',
accessible only between the `local-function-key-map' and its parent, injected
there during frame setup.

This will remove the initial translation:

  (define-key (keymap-parent local-function-key-map) [S-tab] nil)

I don't see why that keymap is cloned, but whatever.

Second, if I just add this my binding actually works:

  (global-set-key [S-tab] #'tab-to-tab-stop), my problem is solved. :)
