The latter is now addressed in Isabelle/a1bd8fe5131b, which uses the new 
Pretty_Tooltip everywhere for input or output.  It also allows some 
stacking of tooltips: activating the formal link in one tooltip opens 
another.  Thus a tooltip for type information can open another one for 
sort information on the displayed type variables, for example.

Loss of focus or ESCAPE dispose such windows. Technically, this is a bit 
like computer game programming: one needs to play with GUI events until it 
works smoothly in the application.  There are still some uneven situations 
here, notably the keyboard focus.
