Yes.

Yes.

Because the frame is maximized, which means the user _wants_ it to
stay that way.

I asked _you_ why would _you_ want that.  The fact that someone at
some point thought KEEP-SIZE should be nil by default, including in
maximized frames (which, btw, didn't exist at that time) does not mean
this is the absolute truth.  Do _you_ have any reasons to believe that
default is justified?

> `set-frame-font' is one way of changing the frame size

No, it's just a way to change the font.
