You mean no title bar? That only is done for applications which support it. If you want maximal screen-estate I guess you just want to configure the fullscreen key. See System Settings→Keyboard→Shortcuts→Windows→Toggle fullscreen mode. There also is a standard hint that applications can set to indicate that they do not want a title bar, maybe wmctrl can set that manually or devils pie automatically. Lastly, check for a different metacity/mutter theme.

Out of all suggestions, I don't think too many people have used anything other than just fullscreen so you might run into issues.

No, I mean no bar from wm or whatever manages the workspaces. The applications I run should have windows with title-bars, or more precise attachments with knobs to control the windows. What I can do without are the permanent tool- and task-bars. Bars of the wm/desktop which can't be configured to autohide will be disabled by me. If there are remaining wm-/desktop-bars with clutter up the screen-estate I switch to a sane environment.
