Ah, I get it.
Indeed, in general it is harmless to left-click in a window,
so Emacs doesn't need to be careful to turn the click event
into a window-switch event only.  So we should indeed probably
be careful to preserve the harmlessness of left-clicking, unless
we decide to start doing what window-managers do and turn those
clicks into window-switch events, but users might be annoyed by it.
