Yes. That's what I called "crude heuristics".

Let's assume there's a new option
`desktop-restore-frames-move-onscreen'. If the user sets it to t, and
I move back a frame that was really visible, but just by a few pixels,
that's a tiny failure. But if I don't move back a frame that is a few
pixels off, and so, harder to access for the user without UI tricks or
M-: (modify-frame-parameters ...), that's a worse problem (not earth
shattering, but definitely not very user-friendly). Which means that,
to be safe, the heuristics must include a small constant factor to err
on the safe side. Crude. So yes, I'll do it, but certainly not having
a get-frame-window-system-metrics pains me.

Uh? Have you filed a bug report about it?
