To customize mwm you have to use the WM-CLASS of the X11 window.
With the WM_NAME property you have no success.
An example for this is the following:
xterm -name XTermIV -n 'Fantomas' -T 'Fantomas'
In this case WM_NAME is "Fantomas" but the WM-CLASS is "XTermIV"

In the above case (window or application-frame) no WM-CLASS is specified.
(I tried 'xprop', 'xlsclients', 'xwininfo'. Using twm and the F.IDENTIFY
 function supply  Class.res_name   = "Untitled"
                  Class.res_class  = "Untitled")


P.S. I actually use CLIM 1.0 on an Ivory-board
     I haven't tried it on allegro up to now
