Whether or not the docs could be more clear is a matter of debate, but
I think they're consistent; if the frame parameters in this context
were meant to be enclosed in their own list, the above would probably
show some extra parens:

That said, if you were to re-write this variable documentation in a
way that's clearer to you, and submit it as an emacs docs bug, someone
with greater authority could decide whether or not to incorporate it.
