That sounds interesting. At the moment I do the same at startup with
xdotool set_desktop n
xdotool * windowsize *
So that way I emulate tiling WM with floating one, but still have
possibility to move windows around.

That's a reasonable choice. I actually do the same in my environment.
W-key is probably the only way to not interact with any app. Should be
default one in my opinion.

Anyway, I've received enough recommendations to give the DWM a try.
