The idea seems absurd. We already have unix commands to perform
all of the requisite functionality. And, with dmenu, you've no
need to hold the caps lock key as you type (are these people
insane?). I just open a terminal for such things:

dict antidisestablishmentarianism<Return>

Easily fast enough, and complete with standard tab completion.
If you want something different, bind a key to open dmenu,
execute a command, and display the output somewhere, but I don't
see the point.

If the designers of X Windows built cars, there would be no fewer than
five steering wheels hidden about the cockpit, none of which followed
the same principles – but you’d be able to shift gears with your car
stereo.  Useful feature that.
