Dock window shadows should lay under any other windows except root (desktop) window. At least its should not cover active window.
I would be a nice improvement indeed.
But is it even possible due to the attributes of the dock window ?
It seems that a window declared as with "_NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_DOCK" will always stay on top, and its shadow by the way. See:
