And that indeed is the answer (from the #vbox IRC tonight). If you run a Arch
guest with 4.15+, you can just disable the systemd vboxadd and vboxadd-service
services (or install the vbox guest additions altogether) and auto
capture/release of the mouse, X, etc.. continues to work fine. I'd add this to
the wiki, but it would just be removed...
