    One thing that would be cool to have is to be able to embed a
    frame from emacsclient.  You can do that now with frame parameters
    and eval, but I was thinking for something like a defun
    create-embedded-frame or something like that.  Just to simplify

Maybe you are right, but I'm not sure.

emacsclient is designed for programs that want to "invoke an editor"
without knowing which one.

By contrast, an Emacs window in the frame of some other app
would be created by an app that knows what it is doing.
Is emacsclient the right interface for that?

Perhaps what you mean is that the app should be able to ask an
existing Emacs to create the window, rather than starting a new Emacs.
The emacsclient mechanism might be the right way to do that.
But the interface to use is a separate question.
