It is not necessary for the mouse pointer to point to "the
previous frame" before "C-x 5 o" in the click-to-mouse setting.
My point is that it is not natural to move the pointer though it
is not necessary. (I think Alt-Tab on W32 doesn't move the
pointer, either.)

Moreover, moving the mouse pointer is not the main objective of
select-frame-set-input-focus or other-frame

  Docstring of select-frame-set-input-focus:
    Select FRAME, raise it, and set input focus, if possible.

  First line of the docstring of other-frame:
    Select the ARG'th different visible frame on current display, and
raise it.

If mouse pointer movement were considered essential for
other-frame, it would be done regardless of the value of
