Doesn't this suffer from the same sort of security attack that requires
us to leave all fullscreened elements on ESC?

Attacker opens fullscreen element, displays dialog, styles the dialog to
cover the entire viewport, then makes the fullscreen element into an
emulated desktop. User hits ESC, dialog goes away, and the user is left
in the emulated desktop.
