something similar is with gmc's handling of desktop and icons. There
something like window without borders on the desktop, where icons live.
maybe there could be a feature to 'unmaximize' the root window? and to place
windows the same way as icons.

does not window grouping help? sawmill has great features of grouping
windows and doing common tasks with them, also you can create 'matching
windows' items to group or set size of certain apps at any time they are
launched. Enlightenment features this also.
