Ion needs to know which windows were launched from which for "smart" window
placement. If a program in frame A launches a program, and while it is
starting up, I switch to frame B, I would still usually want the window to
go in frame A instead of the active frame B when it is finally mapped.
In a more conventional WM one would probably usually want the new window 
on the same workspace as the launcher. The startup notification spec in
the usual very-specific-hints-for-the-so-called-modern-desktop fdo vein
only includes the DESKTOP hint for this.
