What alert does is implementation specific. So if you want a modal
message, you need your message to hook into the xforms-invalid event,
fx.:

      <xforms:input ref="val">
        <xforms:label>Value: </xforms:label>
	<xforms:message level="modal" ev:event="xforms-invalid">
	  Badness
	</xforms:message>
      </xforms:input>
