Currently the frameborder attribute for iframe is marked "entirely obsolete,
and must not be used by authors".  However, this conformance demand is
impractical, because there is no way to remove the iframe border in Internet
Explorer without using this attribute.

The proffered advice to "use CSS" is sadly ineffective in the case of the
market leading browser, and consequently will not address the use case of
iframes with invisible borders for most authors.

Therefore, in order to make it practical to produce interoperable conforming
documents that contain iframes without visible borders, the frameborder
attribute should be allowed.
