OK, but I'm not too keen on "text-mode" frames - there's a danger of
confusion with the major mode of that name.  How about:

    (Note that none of these parameters exist on text terminal frames.}

, using the original term "text terminal", but keeping the sentence in
parenteses?  After all, the main purpose is to alert Emacs Lisp hackers
to the possibility of these frame parameters being nil; exactly when
they are going to be nil is of secondary importance.
