Why should it?

Especially given the statement that there is no intention that one must
unmaximize a frame before changing its size.

If we impose such a behavior for `set-default-font' then it means that in that
case there _is_ such an intention: one would need to unmaximize the frame first,
before using `set-default-font' with nil KEEP-SIZE, to make a nil KEEP-SIZE
value (the default!) be respected.  Why such an exception?

(And I guess we are really talking about `set-frame-font', since
`set-default-font' has been obsolete for a long time now.  Even back in Emacs 20
`set-default-font' was just a vestigial alias for `set-frame-font'.  We can
probably stop talking about `set-default-font' now.)
