There's no tradition.  Callers that don't care about the return value
are free to ignore it.  I don't see a problem here.  We have many
internal functions that return values which might be useful to

That'd be even worse, IMO.

I don't think so, but maybe you will like text-region-pixel-size?

It hints that it returns size of text in a window, which is false.

But we are bike-shedding.
