Yup. Another case where its impossible to do without core hacks.

I tried a lot, created a module that implements abovementioned queries, 
modified, to alter the $_GET[1]

I patched pathauto to allow http:// [2] but that is not much use, because of 
the nature of the url() and l() calls. They refuse to look at the path, and 
make it absolute when required.

So I am now seeing links like http://kaisu.org/http://galloway.kaisu.org 
instead of http://galloway.kaisu.org
(the alias is http://galloway.kaisu.org -> taxonomy/term/77)

This is BAD. at least for my case it it. Was this not fixed in 4.7? I though 
Drupal handled external urls? Why not in this case, then?

Note that the links above point to a development site, so I cannot guarantee 
that you see a representative example there.

In short: So far I am lost, it seems Drupal is not ready for the task I want 
it to perform. 

I will look at some mod_rewrite hadling now, hope that might prove a better 
solution then this one.
