1. Your proposed text is OK by me.

2. You might (dunno) also want to say that whether or not all of the described
behavior is realized exactly as stated can depend on the window mgr.  IOW, as it
is written now, it says that Emacs will do something, and it does not exactly do
that in all cases.

E.g., as the bug report mentioned, the frame on MS Windows is (currently) not
"as wide as possible".  And on Windows fullboth is not "the size of the screen"
(because of the task bar and the width gap mentioned).

3. And as I said, it certainly is possible to get fullwidth on Windows to DTRT.
The frame-cmds.el code I pointed to uses the full screen width - no 0.5cm gap.
(And it allows for the accessible part of the screen, e.g., lets users exclude
or not the Windows task bar and Mac stuff - see function

4. In spite of all that, if you want to close the bug after applying your
proposed manual text, it's OK by me.
