I don't think of "staturated model" in any ANOVA context.

Where I have encountered the term is in multidimensional,
log-linear model building. In that case, the number of
parameters is equal to the number of d.f. rather than the
number of observations.

For instance, a 2x2x2 table has 7 d.f. There are 3 main
effects (means), 3 interactions of two terms, and one
3-way interaction in the saturated model. The use of
the saturated model is for computing the deviance from
the less-full model, instead of just saying "from zero".
I guess it seems more proper to do it that way.
