Giving Emacs (hopefully through Lisp) an ability to control (or request)
always-on-top behavior for a frame is not bad.

But any use Emacs itself would make of this feature, and hopefully any use an
Emacs-Lisp programmer would make of it, should give the user control over it. If
there is no way in Emacs Lisp to give the user control, then I would not be in
favor of this.
