Why not?  Users can always provide their customizations via
'display-buffer-alist'.  Using, for example

(push '("*Backtrace*" (display-buffer-reuse-window display-buffer-pop-up-frame) 
(reusable-frames . t))

The argument provided by 'debug' is for users who don't intend to
customize the behavior.
