Sorry I do not understand what you mean by "ref-input dialog".

And what happen if the end-user does not understand that and modifies
the formula in the edit subdialog ?

In your test document the current cell being C13, the edit subdialog
shows a formula which speak about D14. You will be lucky if the user
remember which was selected when he opened this menu.
When the end-user will see that he will understand that his CF has been
destroyed in some way and he will "correct" it in _this_ dialog.
When he will return in the menu Format > Conditional Formatting, he will
see something else again. In your test case the formula becomes
ISNUMBER(B#REF!) and is still working! Now the end user has destroyed
himself his data.

Best regards.
