comment Is it user-friendly to make the main navigation bar disappear when the user proceeds to checkout?
This is the correct answer. If the user wants to continue browsing the site why did they click the 'checkout' button? Therefore you are making it as easy as possible for the user to complete their goal which = good UX.

My thoughts exactly. I'm a graphic designer myself so I do understand the temptation but the business requirements need to take precedence over aesthetics.

I think completeness meter might be it. (Although I'm sure I heard it referred to as something like a 'whammybar'. Perhaps I'd forgotten to take my medication). If you edit your question to include 'Completeness meter' I can accept your answer. Cheers!

By the way I didn't vote down. It was a fair attempt at an answer, I appreciate the help :)

I don't think that's it. The concept of gradual engagement seems to refer to the desire to get people to sign up by making it as simple as possible to get involved. I'm talking about that technique, specifically using a progress bar, where people feel compelled to complete their profile. Gradual engagement I suppose does encompass this but it's not the term I'm looking for. I'm sure it ends in 'bar'!
