I'd say that dwm's monocle layout could already be considered a "tab"
mode, since it overlaps several windows (you'd only miss having the
titles of all the windows/tabs in the status bar, but I believe
there's a patch for that).

It's just that dwm is designed to be simple and clean, no layouts
inside of other layouts. Which IMHO is unnecessary. You may want to
create a specific layout for your particular case if you need several
groups of windows overlapped in a specific way different than monocle
(or you might as well just use the floating layout).
