P.S.: which is not to say that one might think about such a change.
But it would not be isolated to configurations where a separate frame
is used for everything and the kitchen sink.

The problem with changing focus to an interactive session is that you
can no longer start AUCTeX commands without changing the focus back
again.  So it is probably advisable to only change focus at C-c C-l.
And even then, making the behavior different in interactive mode might
be surprising to some.

We could use C-u C-c C-l for popping up a separate window _and_
changing focus in general.  And a customization option that makes C-c
C-l change focus when in interactive mode might also be possible.
And/or one that will automatically "C-c C-l" when an interactive
compilation is started.

But at the moment it is not clear what configuration your Emacs has
that would mandate a different behavior from the common one.
