For the record and the sake of completeness. I actually misread your
"mouse-follows-focus" as "focus-follows-mouse"...
In my definition, warp makes the mouse move when you tell it to move by
focusing another window ;)

I think it would be interesting to "jail" the nasty rodent into the current
window and warp it with to the next one via keyboard.
This way it can't run away. The same thing happens on the event of a keypress.
Usually, only the focused application gets the keypresses (except if the wm
steals them), but the mouse can "run off"? That doesn't make sense to me. It
might be worth a try.
