I like this but what about an even stronger signal? What about an other
format/style on instant apply dialogs?

1) Non-instant dialogs marks options yet to be applied as red or something
2) Non-instant dialogs have other window handles than instant dialogs
3) Buttons are alligned vertically along right edge for instant dialogs
4) Different background color, ie instant apply have application color
   - Motif had different colors colors in dialogs and main windows

Personally I don't like to mix design and interaction but..
