I agree that you shouldn't have to calculate everything each time,
though I don't know enough about the C code to achieve that right now.

In the end, we would still leave the function interface so that users
can still call the discussed procedures from lisp code, right? I don't
want to introduce an interface just for it to be removed later on if I
can avoid it.

In any case, I altered display-monitor-attribute to use
frame-monitor-attributes and to not succeed on {x, y} = max-{x, y}:

(defun display-monitor-attribute (attribute &optional frame x y)
  "Return the value of the attribute of the 'current' monitor.
By default, use the frame info to determine the current monitor,
but if x and y are non-nil then use the given coordinates to
determine it."
  (if (and x y)
      (cl-loop for monitor in (display-monitor-attributes-list)
               for geometry = (alist-get 'geometry monitor)
               for min-x = (pop geometry)
               for min-y = (pop geometry)
               for max-x = (+ min-x (pop geometry))
               for max-y = (+ min-y (car geometry))
               when (and (<= min-x x)
                         (< x max-x)
                         (<= min-y y)
                         (< y max-y))
               return (alist-get attribute monitor))
    (alist-get attribute (frame-monitor-attributes frame))))
