If the halfway "mark" is as tall as the glass is, any amount of filling
from 0% to 100% would be "to" this mark.

Alternately, if it's a really short glass (more like a petri dish), the
meniscus curve of whatever fluid it is filled with might make a given fill
amount cover both 50% of the way from the bottom and 100%.

Full, if I understand the etymology correctly.  (In short: the amount of
work a donkey - or "ass" - does.)
