Why is that ?
Every call to `make-frame' can use a different set of size/position
parameters, so it is clearly more specific than Xresource settings.
I think more-specific should imply higher-priority.

Similarly, I believe that custom face settings take precedence over
Xresource face settings, or am I confused ?
