Thanks, Eli.

My guess is that it's specific to OS X.

I looked at the Emacs source code a bit. I found the following in
delete_frame[1]:

```
#ifdef NS_IMPL_COCOA
      else
/* Under NS, there is no system mechanism for choosing a new
  window to get focus -- it is left to application code.
  So the portion of THIS application interfacing with NS
  needs to know about it.  We call Fraise_frame, but the
  purpose is really to transfer focus.  */
Fraise_frame (frame1);
#endif
```

The following might also be relevant:

   - Apple's window concepts documentation[2]
   - Uses of NSApp[3], e.g.,
      - activateIgnoringOtherApps[4]
      - makeKeyAndOrderFront[5]
