Thanks for the hint. I'm already using something similar: a separate
shortcut for spawning `exec urxvtc -name whatever' and a floating rule
for /^URxvt:fterm:/.

However, I still resize terminals in tiling mode quite often; e.g.
while reading man pages terminals with more than 80 columns just waste
