That doesn't mean that the question of what the default should be is not
worth discussing.

The fact that you claim that matching the key codes to the labels on the
keys are so important, yet you send the key codes associated with the
VT220 Prior/Next/Find/Select keys when the user presses

That is not from the section where COLUMNS and LINES are defined (scroll
further down the page). The table which the sentence you pasted is
attached to also includes other variables that are _definitely_ defined
by the standard, like TZ and HOME. LINES and COLUMNS are, for that
matter, defined in the same section that TERM is defined in. I think we
have been talking at cross purposes, though... I was not saying,
precisely, that it was the terminal emulator's responsibility to _set_
them, merely to ensure they are _not_ set to values inherited from a
different terminal, which you appeared to be rejecting.
