I strongly disagree.  The X resources (and equivalents) are the only
way to specify startup fonts and geometry in a way that makes them
work on Emacs startup such that the window manager has a chance to
accommodate them.

X resources and startup options are so important that they are one of
the few things mentioned in man pages of programs even when separate
and more elaborate info pages exist.
