What will kinda glitch with compositing since compositors tend to not update the actual window position while the user moves it (so the sheet will stick to its position until the window is finally repositioned)

The concept of a sheet is however not uncriticised, since the modal transient also blocks visual access to its leader - despite the user may want/need to lookup exactly that very information while interacting with the sheet.
