Inconsistent behavior of move with fullscreen windows #2993

What I did:
Open a bunch of windows, fullscreen one of them, try to move it around using
What I saw:
Generally, the containers won't detach from their parents but can move inside them. Special case is split h / v where they can move across outputs.
Another difference in behavior is with unfocused fullscreen windows (fullscreen & change workspace). There, freedom of movement is not restricted in any case.
What I expected instead:
This also applies to global fullscreen windows. Inspired by #2974 (comment).
Given the lack of visual feedback both on the current workspace's layout and any kind of move within its workspace, I'd say fullscreen containers should never be moved within their workspace, but only (and always) directly between outputs. @stapelberg Thoughts?
