After Effects Render Stealing Focus only OPTIONAL

Make After Effects stealing focus only optional.

Why?

App stealing focus disrupts work.
After Effects steals focus every time render finishes.

"Play sounds when render finishes" is an option in After Effects, why is not stealing focus?
Copying or zipping files don't steal operating system focus every time they finish then why is After Effects?
Imagine you're rescaling an image in Photoshop or you're drawing a precise curve in Illustrator and it's all being interrupted and stopped by After Effects which swiches to itself because a render has finished.
Basically After Effects stops whatever you were doing to announce something you might not be interested at the moment.

So Adobe team please make After Effects stealing focus optional so we could turn it off when needed to focus on our work.
It's a simple and easy fix on your end and it would make a big difference on the workflow.
Thanks.

This is fixed in AE Beta 24.1.0 (Build 58)

It's actually not solved and it's more of an issue / bug than a feature request.
