This might violate the principle of least surprise.  Suppose I'm used to
pop up the *Completions* buffer right above the minibuffer window and a
command to display some file on another frame gets me the *Completions*
buffer on a new frame.  In particular, we cannot claim that C-x 5 f does
the same it did before.
