What I guess is that xfwm looks if _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_NORMAL is present
to display it in Alt-tab, while tasks and windows list look if
_NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_DIALOG to _not_ display it.

So tasks list does its job of hiding dialog windows, and that's the
application's job to tell if it wants that or not.
