This is not an X feature, its control by metacity.

Launchers (.desktop files) need to say that support startup
notification. Most GTK+ 2 applications do, and any apps which do not do
this can be trivially fixed, by editting the .desktop file
(StartupNotification=true I believe).

Non-GTK+ 2 apps are supported by stating the class of the window which
is created. See recent posts on desktop-devel-list@gnome.org for the
details on this.
