I'm talking about computer dialog windows that are used when you
request an action and it needs extra information (parameters) to complete
that action.

That is, dialog windows aren't useful on their own, just in connection
with another window / thing. And very short-lived.

I hope we agree on that, at least :)

What has that to do with anything?

And as I said, that's not to be used for 4.4.0, so no, not yet.
