API 2 - "dialogOptions": "display" - Any way to do this?

I have a plugin the needs to show the dialogs for a few different user adjustments. This works in API version 1 using "dialogOptions": "display" in the descriptor.

However, it seems this can’t be done in API 2. It does stop with the dialog but the user can’t access it because the executeAsModal blocks user interaction with the dialog.

Is there any workaround for this? I am very deep into the development of my next plugin in API 2, which I like for the suspendHistory and the executeAsModel… except the lack of a show dialog for interaction is a show stopper for this plugin. I need to convert this plugin to API 1 if that is the case because this plugin must have the option to show the dialog for user interaction.
