I believe the cases of Terminal app, XQuartz 
prove it is possible.

Yes, based on the UI experience on NS port creating a `new frame`
which is selectable from the Emacs’s Icon’s context menu emanating 
from the Dock.

I included that as a test case to make distinct what is the 
frame and window according to terms you use.

I believe Emacs can model how it should interact with this particular
window manager based on how Terminal app, XQuartz does it right.

The select is working between boxes (windows) within an outer most box (frame).

The ask is for the mouse focus to follow select on the outer most boxes 

I haven’t built Emacs 27 on Mac OS and will see what has been suggested by 
OC’s nsterm.c’s mouseMoved.
