Default [TG] Adapting for Mental Grappling

Supers mentions "Mental Grappling". Has anyone considered adapting Technical Grappling for this purpose. Maybe use Will to attack and Mental Strength (p. B209) to defend... any thoughts

I want to say Tim Ponce already did this in Pyramid: "Possessions Under Control," Pyr 3/83

It was a good article and readily works for Mind Control type abilities including spells, powers, psi and even cyberpsi.
It severely weakens powers compared to the default which I felt was best done by calling it a campaign feature. A limitation may be more accurate but I wanted to keep the costs high enough for the setting.
