Still the clients should not know about the windows of other clients
so they would not know how their windows stack and not knowing that
they can't really decide it either.

They should be able to decide relative stacking of their windows so if
a document window is raised, the client is notified of that, and the
client responds by raising its toolbar windows it might work.
