    I'm not really keen on that.  There seems a fundamental mouse handling 
    in Emacs, in that the basis for the command is still the active window.

No, mouse commands are looked up in the window clicked on.
>From commands.texi:

  A key sequence that starts with a mouse event is read using the keymaps
  of the buffer in the window that the mouse was in, not the current
  buffer.  This does not imply that clicking in a window selects that
  window or its buffer---that is entirely under the control of the command
  binding of the key sequence.

    Many others don't work right.  For example when you hover over a previous
    comint input, it says that mouse-2 will copy it down.  But when you do, the
    key binding comes from the active window, with normally the result of 
    into the middle of the old input instead.

That is a bug.  I am investigating it now.
