Hm.  I read:

(info "(elisp) Multiple Displays")

       A few Lisp variables are "terminal-local"; that is, they have a
    separate binding for each terminal.  The binding in effect at any time
    is the one for the terminal that the currently selected frame belongs
    to.  These variables include `default-minibuffer-frame',
    `defining-kbd-macro', `last-kbd-macro', and `system-key-alist'.  They
    are always terminal-local, and can never be buffer-local (*note
    Buffer-Local Variables::) or frame-local.

Would that not be a case for a terminal-local variable?
