But then a NS user must know that make-frame-on-display must have "ns" as 
argument.
This is not documented anywhere (nor is the "w32" thing).
I'd rather just accept anything.

There are X server implementations for OSX also, but mixing X and NS (or X and 
W32) in the same binary is not easy, and AFAIK, nobody has done it for any 
application.  Not to mention that Emacs itself is very hard to convert to a 
"multi-GUI" application.  Having a display check for some theoretical future 
implementation which nobody has asked for and nobody is even considering, is 
just silly IMHO.

I'll close it when I check in a fix.
