Why does it make sense to do that for TTY frames?  The terminal screen
cannot be resized from within Emacs, so the arguments for treating the
menu bar as an add-on are not really valid in this case.

Please ask questions about what you don't understand.  Having just
completed a debugging session for bug #18112, which was all about
assignment of TTY frame sizes, I think I can explain at least some of

It cannot be removed or inhibited.  It was introduced to fix a bug
(#17875).  The problem is that different TTY frames on the same
terminal can potentially have different dimensions, and OTOH FrameCols
and FrameRows are "normally" set only at terminal initiation and in
response to a SIGWINCH signal.  These assignments take care of keeping
FrameCols and FrameRows in sync with frame dimensions in all other
cases, because they all go through change_frame_size.
