I won't object to such a change, but I must say I don't see how that
would be more elegant than the current code in make-frame-on-tty.
Perhaps even less elegant: make-frame-on-tty is a user command, so it
can sustain more ugliness, if user-level considerations justify that.
By contrast, make-frame is a general-purpose infrastructure, and
introducing such conditions into it makes it less general.
