This will send the events to the pointer-grab, it's just that they don't
cause a grab. I would argue that fixing this is much more than just
"convenient", it is pretty vital if there is more than one client.

This seems to be producing a lot of redundant code. Could the client api be
more like "here is a libinput gesture event"? Then wayland would not have
to be updated with every new gesture event. And in many cases the client
will be much easier to write if there is a single called function and the
gesture is identified by an enumeration.
