When a dialog appears and you cannot use the application below, then somehow it has to be shown that on the application cannot be clicked. Remember the logout dialog box, when the display becomes grayscale. This is the same instead of the display, the inaccessible application changes to inform you that you cannot click on it.
My idea is to have different styles for this job (here I will call it dialog fadeout). The styles can be made to be very fast (for older computers) and more complex that need more performance. These styles can be managed from the control center. I have placed one mockup of the control center (made on kde 3.5.2). The idea is to have three types of styles - the fastest is the first (example 3 on screenshot 2). The second is fade to color with transcluency (example 1 on screenshot 2). The thrd type is based on scripts (example 2 and 4 on screenshot 2). For example when the dialog appears, below it the application fills with leaves, or becomes more blurry. The scripts can be installed and uninstalled. This way kde4 will have one new style category (like splash screens, decorations, icon packages) - the dialog fadeout effects. These effects can be used also in the logout screen. It is good if the user can choose different effects for dialog fadeout and logout fadeout sdreens.
If you have any questions and suggestions I would like to answer.

The idea of blurring all the screen except the dialog box is a good idea. Then two things:

1) system modal dialog (keep focus over all other windows): the screen could "fall down" as in XGL (try gnome on Fedora Core 6 and type Alt + Tab). This is a nice photographic effect.

2) non-system modal dialog (keep focus over an application): Only the application could "shrink".

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
