Still IMO in

    :delete  Delete all frames that weren't restored.  This is the default.

a "frame that was not restored" refers to a frame stored in a past
session or configuration.  But IIUC you mean here a frame that existed
in the current session or configuration just before you started to
restore frames and you were not able to use profitably.  At least use
"restored upon" instead.

Then CLEANUP is too narrow.  Maybe something like POST-RESTORE (which
clearly isn't a good term either) to emphasize that it does _not only_
deal with frames that were rejected or ignored.
