Not really, that would go against the design decisions for xfwm4 that is 
to stick to what the application does or asks using standards means 
rather than allowing the user to change the behavior of the window 
manager based on the application running or even the active window.

So, in a nutshell, I'd say that there is no plan to add such a feature 
and chances are very low that a patch for that would be merged.

Note that you can already disable the alt+click option globally, not for 
just an application, though.
