Palette as Main Stack

It appears the natural message path between substacks and stacks is ignored
when the mainstack of a substack is a palette.  I have a project with a
palette set up as mainstack that does not seem to be getting any messages
from objects residing in topLevel subStacks of the palette (ie mousedown/up,

1) Is this expected behavior?

2) Would a better stack arrangement be to use a combination of a hidden
topLevel stack (that contains all stack-wide scripts) which has a visible
palette subStack?

Thanks & Regards,
