[xmonad] Newbie questions (wrt floating windows)

I've just begun an attempt at moving to XMonad, and have a couple of
1) I like titlebars but find that the decorators (e.g. noFrillsDeco) do
not apply to floating windows. Is there a way to decorate the floats too?
Even better: is there a way to apply decorations only to certain windows
(i.e. in the manageHook)?
2) The floating windows are always in front of tiled windows. This is
annoying: i would like to be able to script something so that the floating
layer is hidden if a tiled window is focused. Is there some command along
the lines of "hide all floats"?
(I'm sure #2 runs against the whole philosophy of tiling window managers, but
i like a "mongrel" workspace for freeform messing around, and tiling for when
i'm down to some serious work.)
