Ok, I decided to use the following shortcuts by default:

       Mod1-, Focus previous screen, if any.

       Mod1-. Focus next screen, if any.

              Send focused window to previous screen, if any.

              Send focused window to next screen, if any.

The usual multihead setup will be just 2 screens, only some will have
3 or more screens, so only those need to restore idxtomon from hg
history in config.def.h in order to use some shortcuts to address the
monitors directly if they wish.

I'm happy with these shortcuts, because they work in QWERTY and QWERTZ
-- AZERTY users might need to adjust them as usual ;)

Kind regards,
