I'd say that applies to "unsolicited" windows, that open even if I did not
request them. An example is the Gaim conversation window, which opens when
somebody sends you a message. If I'm typing into another window and it
steals my focus, I'll be disrupted and irritated. Windows that I request to
be opened, e.g. by starting an application or selecting a menu entry (that
leads to a dialog box) in an open application, should IMO get the focus.

I'm not sure how the window manager can identify these "unsolicited"
windows though.
