Well, there are lots of little problems with this solution, some of 
which have to do
with the semantics of N, so that 1/2+2I  looks like floats, and 
2^5000+2I looks like
1.4124...x10^1505 + 0. I.   with a red box around the 0.

but also there is an issue that FullForm[%] is peculiar.

So the idea of changing the display format in $Post processing is a possibility, it rapidly becomes less elegant if you expect it to cover every eventuality, and
probably not possible if you want FullForm to work.
