What you expect is up to you, but I rather suspect that's not what I
would want in most cases.  Remember, IIUC, topmost means it sticks to
the glass and gets in the way of other things, and must be dismissed
(or worse, actively given a response) to get it out of the way.

By contrast, normally popup windows are put on top, but simply
selecting another window allows you to work in that window without
specifically dismissing the reminder.  That is the behavior I want for
something called "reminder".  On the one hand, I probably asked for
it, so it should start on top.  OTOH, now I've seen it, and even if I
focus attention elsewhere for now, I might want to keep it around for
later.  In that case it needs to be easy to get it out of the way
without dismissing it.
