Uh ? I don't think so (unless I did not understood what you meant).

In NeXTstep/OPENSTEP, the application don't get the mouseDown on its  
tile/appicon. The dock get it. IIRC, Fiend and some other apps  
hacked around by puttin its own window on top of the Dock controlled  
tile. You can discover that by moving the dock with the  
NeXT/workspace icon while such an applicatiton is docked.
