Well dockable is a adjective so it begs the question: dockable what?
I agree this is implementation terminology that probably should not be
on the GUI.
I find calling these dialogs to be part of the confusion (as well as
being buried) . A dialogue suggest some kind of direct one-off
interaction, like entering image scaling information and pressing OK,
not a utility window I put on one side to be used from time to time.
Since they are indeed windows , I don't see much wrong with that term.
