I just use AutoHotKey and pretend I'm using true Full Screen. And correct me if I'm wrong, but this is an issue that still persists with FFXI so I wouldn't get my hopes up about them adding the proper functionality in XIV.
The difference here is XI was a straight port from the PS2 to the PC. FFXIV was built on the PC and being ported to the PS3 and already confirmed to having to be redone in various ways for the PS3 because of how it manages its' memory. Also, load up another directx intensive or focus application and watch how XIV tend to crash because it loses focus, so it's definitely a legitimate problem compared to a shoddy port.
That is to say if it IS a problem rather than a design decision.
