    ... the frame-fitting part is optional. ...  You can no doubt
    imagine that without frame fitting not much would be gained by
    removing Dired details ...

That is a critical point -- and is why you need frame fitting.  If you
were to use frames and did not care about permission, owner, group,
size, and date, fitting the frame would make sense.  I can see that
someone who uses restricted software that does not make things
difficult for interlopers might not care about permissions or owners
-- it is like computing was 30 years ago and is very nice until you
get into trouble.

    ... dired-details ... defines `dired-details-state' with `defvar'.

Ah, I must have got an earlier version of dired-details.el, which did
not define `dired-details-state'.
