Tabbing should indeed be done by the WM: you can't know in advance what tabs should be grouped. I have yet to see a program that supports tabbing that allows me to move tabs from one window to another, besides galeon (and emacs, though it is not exactly "tabs" there).
Eventually I decided not to use fluxwm, because of non-relevant reasons (More about that in a future Grumpy Editor's article about WMs ;-) )
One problem with grouping xterms is that you can't resize just one: you have to resize the all together. If one of the windows runs less or whatever, the underlying shell will not be notified of the resize and will behave strangely .
