You can get a two coat float pretty close to flush with drywall. Close enough that nobody would notice anyway. I've done it a couple times.
Been a while, but I recall needing to do a thin scratch coat and keep the mud thin as I could behind my float strip.
Could probably use the drywall as a "float strip" if it were straight and plumb enough.

I don't really mind the look of the 1/2" rippers to hide a one coat though. It used to bug me but now I kinda like it actually
