What are some of the ways we can set a ceiling for the FFP completion work now without knowing the specific tasks, and allow for FFP orders to be placed?

Although there may be a number of acceptable ways, the examples I found consistently left the estimated IDIQ CLIN values blank when there was a high degree of uncertainty. FAR 16.504 doesn't require that a maximum "ceiling" be stated at the CLIN level. So these examples, from across the Services, listed the IDIQ min/max in terms of dollars within a narrative in front of Section B. The CLINs in Section B were displayed as placeholders to facilitate future task order development; while a sample task order was used for price/cost evaluation purposes. This approach was even spelled out in a solicitation Q&A document posted on FBO for one of the examples.
