    No, it becomes a noop.  The client message gets sent to the root window but 
    since nobody (i.e. the window manager) isn't listening for it, nothing more 

Then by all means we should make it send the proper messages.

    It depends on how we want raise-frame to behave.  Do we want Emacs to 
    the frame to the current desktop or not?  To not switch is the current 
    implementation so if we want to change I suggest next release.

I don't think Emacs should move the window to a different desktop
merely because the code thinks it should be raised.  That's would be
too drastic, an interference with the user's window layout.

However, selecting the desktop which contains that window,
as you've said _NET_ACTIVATE_WINDOW does, is good.
