In Akonadi we theoretically have the notion of a "window id to use for dialogs 
'transient for'".
See Akonadi::AgentBase::winIdForDialogs()

It isn't implemented very well and probably not used every where it should be.

I think the "authentication as workspace service" is a good idea, I am 
wondering if the "winId for dialogs" could also be implemented in a similar 
fashion, i.e. as something provided by the workspace
