If you can describe how to do that with all, or at least some, of the toolkits and window managers supported by Emacs, someone here could write the code to implement that. For now, the Windows version can do that, but the others cannot.

I guess the idea of maximized versus normal (when that idea exists) is
private to the window manager, but maybe it'd be possible to have
"--fullscreen" understood as just an initial size and position, not
unlike --geometry but with a calculated size.

Yes, this is what xli does. It creates a window with the size of the screen and does XSetNormalHints with both Psize and Usize set, and minsize set to maxsize.

It makes the window cover the screen, but it is no maximized in the window manager sense, i.e. if there is a maximize button that the window manager puts on the window it is not in the maximize state. maybe that doesn't matter.
