I'm not sure my parents or sisters would click on "ok" in front of such
a dialog. They'd be confused about the dialog, and I wouldn't be
surprised if they cancelled everything or filled out bogus values and
then decide the ftp method doesn't work.
I'd be more in favour to expect a "username ftpsite" uri from users who
want to log on a ftp server which accepts both anonymous and non
anonymous logins. This could also be exposed in a more discoverable way
in "network locations"
