Why would you want that? It seems natural to place the new window in
the master area. It is also how dwm behaves.

For me the number refers to a place where the window is being displayed
hence if I select MOD+2 I always want to select the first window of
the stack area.

If you want a stable and unique identifier for a window (e.g. for
scripting purposes) you can use its id. However since the ids only ever
increase (after closing a few windows you will encounter gaps) it is
probably not what you want.
