I agree on the fact that ban/unban stuff does not belong to
arrange(), I plan to change this. However, floating is used to
resize all visible windows respecting increment hints, so if you
toggle to floating when in some tiled layout, you will notice
that all windows will get a size they asked for. This is the
only reason why floating exists explicitly besides ban/unban
