It appears that setting initial-frame-alist has no effect if Emacs is

the resulting frame has default width and height, not those specified in ~/.emacs. But this would be expected if the initial frame is the one in the xterm. Whereas with --daemon, the apparent initial frame is the one
produced by emacsclient -c.

It's not, the initial frame is a special frame that cannot be displayed.
Again: emacs --daemon is equivalent to emacs -nw -f server-start
If you try more, you can probably find even more variations of this same
basic issue...

So is this a bug or expected behavior?  If the latter, shouldn't it
be documented?  (I hope it's relatively easily fixed bug, since I
would like to have setting initial-frame-alist take effect if Emacs
is started with --daemon.)

Patches are welcome!

Is there a reason not to use `default-frame-alist' instead?
