Option to define shortcuts to be passed to host os

I really would like to see an option in the applications "input" preferences panel where one can define custom shortcuts (or maybe even special keys) to be passed to the host os instead of the guest.

I am thinking about something like the mac os x pref pane in "keyboard & mouse" where one can define shortcuts. A list could be used to redefine or deactivate all the shortcuts already present for example cmd-q or cmd-h in the mac os x version. One could select from internal functions (reset, pause etc.) or pass the command to the host os. (and maybe even modify it: send cmd-tab to host os.)

This approach would solve annoying bugs like #4208, #2145, #1668 and #1773
