No doubt about the usefulness of the floating layout. I was just
criticising the few functionality for floating windows (maximization in
all directions, resizing, moving). In fact I decided to get rid of the
tiled layout as default for any window.

The following rule makes every window floating by default and I'm free
to set the few windows in tiled mode that really have to be there. To me
it's far to nerve wracking to have broken apps opening their windows in
tiled mode and later on trying to figure out the necessary rules
parameters to make them floating by default.

Rule rules[] = {
    /* class instance title tags ref isfloating */
    { NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, True },
