Why not?

Anyway, now I'm utterly confused.  First, the OP's description of the
problem included iconified frames -- did you do your testing like he
described?

Second, I'm still unsure whether we are talking about GUI or TTY
frames; in the latter case, I'm sure you will agree that
select-frame-set-input-focus will never give focus to any TTY frame.

Last, but not least, AFAIK the effect of select-frame-set-input-focus
on the GUI frame that gets focus does depend on the window manager to
some extent.

In any case, I suggest to report the full detailed description of the
issue via "M-x report-emacs-bug", and include there suggestions to fix
the doc strings, if you still think they need fixing.
