display-graphic-p accepts argument, so if a function displays on
another frame or display, it should be passed that frame or display.

IMO, the check should be on the C level where the xwidget primitives
are implemented.  One such place is make-xwidget; maybe there are
more.  (The proper way of testing this on the C level is not by
calling display-graphic-p, but rather with check_x_display_info.)
