Normally I don't use several frames, but for emacsclients I like the new
behavior.  Making it depend on pop-up-frames wouldn't help me, so I'm
for the reversed behavior of the -c option, too.

But then -c --current-frame would't make sense.  How about -m

BTW: The man page needs to be updated, too.
