Just to be clear for anyone else following along: Blizzard_NamePlates re-uses a lot of the code from raid frames (CompactUnitFrame), but without the click-ableness. It attaches things it calla "UnitFrames" to the NamePlate# frames returned by C_NamePlate.GetNamePlateForUnit(namePlateUnitToken) but then disables mouse interaction so all clicks go to NamePlate#.
