I think the best place is in redisplay_internal, which redisplays
frame by frame.  Otherwise, we'd end up doing this for each window
on a frame again and again.

I can't work on this, but maybe this is helpful:

select_frame_for_redisplay (Lisp_Object frame)
  Lisp_Object tail, sym, val;
  selected_frame = frame;
  for (tail = XFRAME (frame)->param_alist; CONSP (tail); tail = XCDR (tail))
    if (CONSP (XCAR (tail))
        && (sym = XCAR (XCAR (tail)),
            SYMBOLP (sym))
        && (sym = indirect_variable (sym),
            val = SYMBOL_VALUE (sym),
            (BUFFER_LOCAL_VALUEP (val)
             || SOME_BUFFER_LOCAL_VALUEP (val)))
        && XBUFFER_LOCAL_VALUE (val)->check_frame)
      Fsymbol_value (sym);

This works analogous to what set_buffer does for buffer-local
variables (hopefully; I haven't tried anything): For all frame
parameters P, check if a frame-local variable P exists.  If so, swap
P's value in by calling Fsymbol_value.  That works because the innards
of Fsymbol_value compare the frame recorded in the local value with
the currently selected frame.

In redisplay_internal, call the function with the frame being
displayed, and in an unwind-protect handler (I think there is already
one), call it to restore the original selected frame and its values.
