I don't see any real world cases where that would be needed. In Plasma we
either have a panel with no input fields at all (normal panel) or panels which
should have focus directly from start (e.g. widget explorer). They have an
input field but typing in it should start searching directly, if not the input
is delegated to krunner, which is certainly not what is wanted.
