It's not clear that the original design choice was made in full knowledge of the problems that have been exposed since then. We could ask Juanma, who added desktop-restore-in-current-display in 2013, so I'll CC Juanma.

It's quite bad for Emacs to freeze, so it may make sense to change the default in this area even if defaulting to t is suboptimal in some other way.
