Emacs itself uses set-frame-position.  It also moves frames on display
via the 'top' and 'left' frame parameters.  One notable case where
this happens is the desktop.el package, which restores frame and
window configuration of a previous Emacs session.

So I think the inability to do that is quite a big deal for Emacs
