I had the same problems.  In fact, while it might be a bit tacky, making the
docking bars (or the text inside them) blink while dragging would add even
more emphasis.  Without a tool tip, a noob might accidentally initiate a
dockable drag, then realize that is not what he/she wants and just let go of
the dialog, without ever noticing that the docking bars had appeared. 
Flashing would help draw their attention to this feature.
