Not really, developers are free to set such hints. And the
Gnome/KDE front is quite pro-EWMH. If they need yet another
hint, they have a good connection to to simply
release the next version of the EWMH spec which contains such
another hint (which is only supported by their bleeding edge
windows vista clone environments ;)) - and actually those
kwin/metacity/... developers are more familiar with Windows/OS X
than anything else, hence they don't care much about ICCCM
(except what's supported out of the box by Qt or GTK).

So, don't expect they will be happy if you ask for setting the
TRANSIENT_FOR hint, I would bet, they even dunno about this old
stylish approaches ;)

Same with me. And once again: 2wm is dead dead dead!
