I guess that depends on why switch-to-buffer-other-window uses
pop-to-buffer.

Note that the use of pop-to-buffer already causes the curent behavior to
be different from the doc you cite: with pop-up-frames set to non-nil,
if the currently selected window is the only window, it is not split:
another frame is creqated instead.
