Yes, perfectly.
So there's no solution, as i thought.
Anyways, if you think about the NextWindow action, it has a built-in way 
to give focus to iconifed windows and to restore them.
So, at least in theory, it would be possible to have an action "Restore" 
that gives focus to the last iconified windows and restore it to the 
screen, thanks to a some kind of "memory".

Do you see what i mean?

Thank you for your answer!
