It already is isn't it?

I'd rather end up with only one or two ways of including sub-documents.  
Now we have <img>,<object>,<embed>,<iframe>,<frame> and also the various  
popup ways.

It should end up with <img> for image-like handling, eg. restricting the  
width and resizing the image's viewport to whatever is stated (or expand  
the size to the image's size if no size is requested).

And then keeping one tag for including sub-documents (that can also be  
images) but their size is then treated with the scrollbar approaches like  
<iframe>.
