The problem with floating is that it toggles the client state. If
initially treated as floating window, it will toggle to the
tiled/monocle/.. layout. If then toggled back to floating, it won't be
resized to fullscreen mode. This sucks more imho.

For such clients you could introduce a rule that forces fullscreen
clients into tiled mode to get the behavior you are after.
Probably a small adjustment to the fullscreen handling needs to be
done to achieve this.
