Thanks, Scott, for pointing me to the right direction.
I submitted a feedback item there now.
Today, again, I inadertendly shut down my host OS instead of my guest OS by hitting, , * while, apparently, focus was yielded to the host OS by VMware Workstation.

After having submitted this issue as a feature suggestion, are there plans for implementing and solving this issue?
* On a German Windows 10 installation this keyboard combination triggers Windows System Menu, Shut down options, Shut down.

with a semi-transparent dark layer while in fullscreen
and focus is yielded to host.
I envision the following Preferences panel for both, the audible and visual options:
PS: When user sets transparency to 100 %, overlay code may be skipped for optimization.
Here's a simulation of the overlay effect I propose to happen (Windowed mode is depicted here for illustration purposes):
