It was not implemented on systems other than windows, so if we change the signature we will not be able implement/change this on linux/osx.

What is wrong in the current wording? If the element is not visible in taskbar we cannot show something on top of it. We never specified when something is visible/non-visible in taskbar.
We can update the words, but it will be good to use current methods signatures.
