On X also, if we start Emacs with, for instance, "-fn
-*-fixed-*--16-*-iso8859-1", Emacs may use an italic font
(even without font-backend), which is the same as xterm.
It's upto the behaviour of font backend.  For instance, with
Xft font-backend, as it uses fontconfig library for font
selection and fontconfig has system wide default preference,
"-fn monospace-12" will results in non-italic, non-bold

If we are going to implement the feature "prefer normal
style font if a user doesn't specify anything", I think it
should be done in the different place, not in
