Well, this is more or less the same thing I was proposing (clearier
explained, my mails before mid day are a mess), but you still have the
same problem: what if a client is tagged with tags in more than one
I reckon you will need a compromise here, but maybe there is a good
solution I haven't thought about.
I have also thought that you should take a different approach with
floating clients. You should be able to move it wherever, don't matter
in which monitor its tag it is. This could be confusing...

Have a nice weekend,
