Notice how the two floating dialog boxes "merge" together so that you
cannot tell which is which (because there is no visual border). The picture
may even look worse if the box on the top is smaller than the bottom one.

Of course, if the border color is different from the background color there
will be a line separating the boxes, but that is not my case.

Red one is the focuced. Well, if one sets the colors, he/she recognizes which
correspond to which. In the example I intentionally moved the focus out of
the floating windows to show the effect.
