Good idea! After 'man xemacs' I found a command line option '-title'
with which you can set the className.

$ xemacs -title foo &
$ xprop | grep WM_NAME
(click on xemacs window)

Now rest the question, how do I use the manageHook to actually let
xmonad respect the hints of xemacs.

BTW I've found an extension from David Roundy named
XMonad.Layout.LayoutHints that also seens to work reasonably. However
it still doesn't work when using my: NB.noBorders (T.tabbed
T.shrinkText T.defaultTConf { T.tabSize = 15 }) layout :-(
