Filling in with background colour would be broken at best. What happens
when an app draws it's own back on the bottom/right edges? Does the
colour propogate to the extra space, or not? Either way, you'd end up
with undesired behaviour.
I haven't seen an X terminal yet that doesn't maximize to the best of
its ability (i.e., columns*width of character). If you want a terminal
that fills the whole screen, ctrl-alt-F1 works great. ;-)
