As another example, it doesn't fit into the future Emacs model where GUI and text (a.k.a. tty) frames can be supported in the same session.

This suggests that the abstract concept of "runtime window system" is
perfectly valid but that's it's frame-specific.  I have no problem
with that at all.  In fact I like it.  I'm not wedded to the variable
'window-system'.  I'm using it now because I have no choice now --
this is one and only hook emacs provides me.  What it's important to
me is the concept, not the access point.

Cool.  So window-system becomes a frame parameter.  And if it's passed to
make-frame, it determines what kind of frame to create.  Nice and clean.
