I don't think so; while "click to focus" might have originated in 
AmigaOS, the others don't really have a clear origin AFAIK - at least 
it's clearly not Windows.

Anyway, I don't see much use in that third mode either, but it's a 
compromise between FFM, and the usual "click to front" mode - it's a 
combination of their features (even though it comes at a usability cost 
And just because I don't use it personally, there seems to be enough 
people that actually like it. I use FFM because I find the always-front 
windows annoying - but that's something this mode delivers as well.
