If you use one client per tag, then you could use only one tag and cycle
between clients (like you actually do with tags).
I usually have 2 tags, 1 with rxvt+dvtm, 2 with Google Chrome, which I switch
with mod-tab. I'd also set mod-backspace to cycle the clients into the current
tag. Though, I'd invert Caps Lock and Backspace, so it's almost the same thing
to type mod-tab or mod-backspace. I know it's a matter of taste, but think
about it if can improve your workflow in some way.

Why don't you just replace all [1-9] with F[1-9] in your config.h? This way you
can comfortally use all clients which already provide alt-[1-9] to change
"something" (like Chromium).
