It also disables the wm keybindings. And if your user switches
application when the filechooser is opened, I suspect that dialog
will stay on top forever. To be verified though.

Fullscreen applications are weird beasts.

I was thinking (for unknown reasons) you were working on a whole
system, not on an application. This makes my suggestions on
tackling the problem from the window manager side pretty useless.

wmclasses are a way to identify sets of windows so you'll be able
to set hints on them from outside the application, for example by
using an external program such as wmctrl.
