So they already know the window isn't visible and are asking for an 
of the circumstances for this so I don't think this update will satisfy 
them without
more explanation.

At the very least we need to add that
"Some {@code Window}s are not visible in the task bar.
For example undecorated Windows may not be visible".

I do not know if we can say something stronger than that ?
Is this the case on all platforms ?
