I think either behavior is acceptable as long as it can be overridden by
the user (via special-display-buffer-names).  Reproducing the previous
behavior (of ignoring pop-up-frames) is probably the safer option, and
it at least would suit my use-pattern better as well (I do have
pop-up-frames set to t but would rather not have a new frame created for
those dired-lists unless I explicitly set one up in
special-display-buffer-names with a specific geometry).
