I did some research and as I understand it the GNOME guidelines 
recommends just "%b", even when there is only one frame.

Many programs use the style "%b - GNU Emacs". E.g. gvim, Gimp, Firefox, 
and LibreOffice.

Either way it seems popular to place the document name first, which 
makes sense.

GNOME 2:

GNOME 3: https://wiki.gnome.org/Design/HIG/ApplicationName

I was thinking of the use case when DISPLAY is set to show frames on a 
different machine, e.g. when running over SSH with X forwarding. Then it 
could be useful to show system-name.

Frames are never remote, only buffers are.

I suggest that frame-title-format is changed to something like this:

(multiple-frames "GNU Emacs - %b"
                  ("GNU Emacs"))

This would give Emacs a slightly more modern look.

The current use of invocation-name might be useful for Emacs developers 
running multiple versions, but it serves no purpose for normal users.

The current use of system-name has no real value when running Emacs 
locally, but perhaps it could be added to remote frames only.

Kind regards,
Lars Ljung
