+ Modal dialogs do not allow users to interact with elements behind the dialog. This can be problematic for elements that are not children of the dialog, but are absolutely positioned to appear as though they are. The <code>_allowInteraction()</code> method determines whether the user should be allowed to interact with a given target element; therefore, it can be used to whitelist elements that are not children of the dialog but you want users to be able to use.
