Windows opening in background

There was a recent change regarding windows being opened behind the
window you're working on. This has improved the behaviour of the desktop
for most cases, but there is a case that has broken a bit. Is it
possible/practical to recognise when a program's controlling terminal is
a gnome-terminal that has been chosen to not be obscured, and instead
freely obscure it, so programs like "mplayer -fs" do the expected thing
and display in the foreground?
If not, could a second, fake, X display be used that X terminals will
have in the environment of the processes they start, whereby the window
manager puts them on top of that terminal?
Or something like that?
