At least on OS X there must be a way to discriminate since the OS enables scrolling of windows not holding the keyboard focus. Which is important because its almost as good as the ancient and wonderful RISC OS approach that allows the window with keyboard focus to not be the topmost window. Which means you can have a large window open to read stuff from whilst a window into which you need to type something can be almost hidden underneath, leaving the view clear. Yes, it’s less important if you have huge screens.
