Because I didn't make it a toggle :D

That would be of course possible and once the code is in hildon extras
you can of course contribute to it.
I decided against it, simply because I personally don't need it. In
Conboy you activate the fullscreen mode using the menu or a keyboard
If you want a button on the toolbar, why not just add the button and add
gtk_window_fullscreen() as callback. That's almost a one liner + you get
the correct behavior of this button, e.g. spacing between other buttons,
colorful highlight while pressing etc...
