    Since `C-x 2' is not the exact equivalent of `C-x 4 f M-n RET'
    (the difference is where point lands after the command: in the 
    first case
    it is in the initial window, in the second case it is in a new window).
    The same difference makes sense for `C-x 2' and new 
    `make-window-command' with pop-up-frames=nil would leave point in a new
    window, like `make-frame-command' leaves point in a new frame.
Yes. Good.
