or... am I misunderstanding?
On most of the models I've done the axle cannot be moved all the way back because they put a small "slug" inside the right dropout to hold the derailleur from rotating. You usually can't see it w/o loosening the derailleur. Most bikes can still adjust chain tension enough (1 link) but a few needed to have that "slug" replaced by a bolt outside the dropout or else need a half link. One or the other. Anything to get rid of that dam tensioner.

I can't take pics now but will do so when I can.
