Good (concerning the non-focusable floating toolbars).

Anyway, KWin can have a lot of focus policie (on mouse hover, on click,
after a delay, none... always on top, always on top of window Foo...).
Windows also can have types (main, dialog, dock, toolbar...).
Different focus policies could be applied to those different types of
windows, isn't it?

In the worst case, you could add a special type to KWin and this type
would be only used by Krita (and Kolourpaint... and a few others).
