An ACCEPTING-VALUES dialog in its own window

A colleague here wants to put a DW:ACCEPTING-VALUES dialog in its own
temporary window, as in:

(dw:accepting-values (*query-io* :own-window t) (accept 'sys:expression))

His problem is that when the temporary window pops up, and he
left-clicks ("Replace This Field") in order to enter a value,
presentations on the (exposed but locked) regular window below do not
highlight--i.e., they are not directly acceptable as input.  Is there
any way to make such regular-window presentations acceptable to the
temporary-window dialog?  And in the longer term, is there a simple way
to do this in CLIM?
