Did you check your DSDT for there have some "Notify (VGA, 0x81)"
statement in AFN0..AFN15?
If YES, I think that means your machine in case the 0x81 is for ATI used
by default.

On the other hand, 
I am also trying to write patch for avoid my AC-power problem. Like your
idea, I think just add radeon-acpi to acpi notifier chain then
acpi/video feed event to chain before issue KEY code like Matthew's code
for ACPI_VIDEO_NOTIFY_SWITCH with intel_opregion on 0x80.
The following code for reference:
