Popup windows should have a globalsheet property to look the same as the rest of popups in Discover. Even though the left menu is active and not darkened, this makes it visually inconsistent to the rest of popups within Discover.
At the same time, the interaction on the un-darkened section bears no changes to the popup window. Therefore, if there is no effect, it makes no difference in keeping looks consistent.

Make all OverlaySheets window-modal
Right now half of Discover's OverlaySheets are view-modal and the other
half are window-modal. This feels arbitrary to the user, and view-modal
sheets look weird since the global drawer doesn't darken. This is
because it's still interactive, but there's really no point in being
able to interact with the global drawer while a sheet is open anyway. So
let's just make them all window-modal.
