Having your application always on top would interfere with the Metro Style design. I would highly recommend against it. If everyone did this I am sure everyone would feel their application is so important it needs to be in the foreground all the time and this would ruin the Metro Style experience. What is your use-case for this that requires your application to always be visible?
The Win32 documentation for Desktop development has not been released yet as far as I know. This would be covered in desktop development issues. This forum is for Metro Style application development. You might want to try posting your Desktop development questions on one of the windows desktop development forums: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/category/windowsdesktopdev

This behavior is available only to accessibility apps (and very targetted test automation apps) flagged with the UIAccess privilege. As Jeff says, it should not be used for general purpose applications.
