I'm not sure I understand why it's misleading.  You said:

However, "face spec" is described in '(elisp)Defining Faces' as and
alist whose elements each have the form

          (DISPLAY . PLIST)

and I believe the SPEC argument accepted by face-spec-choose has this
form.  The argument received by face-spec-set-2 is just the PLIST
which matches the frame's display, i.e. a simple list.  So what would
you want the doc string to say about this?
