Well, the proposal is to add this default binding NOW, not later.

I argued for waiting, doing nothing now, so we can more easily do something
better later if we like.

Actually, I argued that only conditionally - conditional on the absence of any
real arguments in favor of making that change NOW.  So far, nothing specific
regarding `f11' or fullscreen toggling.

And actually, I don't care so much about `f11' as I do about getting some good,
Emacs-specific reasons for binding it by default.  Nothing so far. 

As for the rest of it, yes: we have seen precisely that argument - ANY unused
key, outside convention for ANYthing that could be used in Emacs.
