CHOOSE-FILE-DIALOG is a high-level wrapper around the _SFGetFile
trap. That trap accepts a prompt string, but doesn't do anything
with it. Hence, MCL would need to modify the _SFGetFile dialog
in order to do anything with a prompt string, certainly possible,
but not the standard Mac user interface.
