No, there's no way to force some other program to do what you want.
Most top-level windows should not be override-redirect. The main uses
for o-r are menus and tooltips. If an application is setting o-r on a
top level window, that's a bug, IMO, but they're free to do it.
Additionally, you "need this." Please explain why you think you need
it, and we'll try to help you come up with a different approach.
