Will that be the typical scenario? Most preference windows are large and
will get in the way if I (as a sighted user) leave them open. I think
it's safe to assume that the typical scenario for a lot of users will be
"open, make changes, dismiss", just like before.

Also, and this is more important, does the classification of these
instant-apply windows as (3) solve the accessibility problems? I think
not, on the contrary.
