Draw modal windows above fullscreen windows. I.e.
Install Keepassxc and enable autotype. Run a window and hit the autotype keybinding. The window does not appear. If you leave the fullscreen mode you can see the autotype dialog.

I'm retagging this as a feature request. To my knowledge, the specs do not dictate how _NET_WM_STATE_MODAL works in combination with _NET_WM_STATE_FULLSCREEN, so there is no defined behavior that we're violating.
In fact I would question why the client wouldn't set _NET_WM_STATE_ABOVE which unlike _NET_WM_STATE_MODAL does have defined behavior with regards to the stacking(?)
