That was what I was trying to ask.

I'm not a native English speaker, I do think that is the most obvious
answer to the question "How come emacsclient --create-frame doesn't
understand -geometry?" is to explain why it doesn't.

_If_ there was a reason (technical, design decision, or what have you)
the answer would have been an explanation of why. If there isn't, it
might make sense to think about taking a crack at whipping one up.

It doesn't answer the question of whether it makes sense to spend time
implementing -geometry or not, which depends on why it doesn't support
it already, at least in my - perhaps twisted - mind.
