Renderer windows aren't topmost (you can hide them with other windows),
but I don't believe you can have a transparent window on top of them
since they're using DirectX to blit directly to the screen. If you want
to put something on top of it you should use the mixer mode of the VMRs,
or write a transform filter that does the mixing.

In any case, putting a window on top of a renderer is a bad idea, since
the DirectX blits will be split into regions to prevent it from
overwriting the window that is on top of the renderer. The blits are not
done with subpixel accuracy, so it can be very obvious that the blits
are split up if you're doing any kind of stretching.
