I can see that this is useful, yes.

So, from the user's pov, running gnuclient -nw in, say xterm, would
behave like running emacs -nw, except that it will connect to the
running emacs and use the xterm as the tty, rather than starting a new
emacs on the xterm tty.

Although this is conceptually different from a make-frame-on-tty
function which would be useful to make an emacs frame on any tty
device, it would probably use the same fundamental code.

So it mostly boils down to supporting both windowing and non-windowing
frames at the same time.
