That doesn't matter.  What matters is that there are pages with content 
inside <iframe> and that if we started using it that would change the 
behavior of those pages in user agents that DO support iframes.

I'm willing to bet money that there are <iframe> elements with no src 
initially and child content that get content inserted into them by later 
seetting @src or by using document.write()...

That would work better, yes.  That's starting to make the feature a lot 
more annoying to use, though, not to mention requiring a lot more 
changes to specifications (parsing, scripting, etc) to implement.
