YES!!!!!!!! I OPPOSE IT!!!!!!
Please don't act surprised. There are people who actually think this is
THE biggest mistake in GUI design ever and that it has seriously damaged
the ability to work with multiple documents and multiple pieces of
software on a display and possibly set back advancement in GUI by decades.

The client can decide whether or not to raise the window on click.
A client is perfectly free to raise on every click.
I expect clients will quickly standardize on a different behavior
however, now that we are FINALLY have the ability to make a sensible
1. Clicks in "dead" area (ie where it does nothing else) will raise
2. Clicks in window borders will raise the window, but drags will not
3. Drags that "draw" (such as brush strokes in a painting program)
will raise the window, since you may want to paint into the obscured area.
