Is TARGET deprecated?

I've had a couple comments about the TARGET attribute missing
from the strict DTD, asking if that was intentional. Was it?
I checked the draft quickly and couldn't see it specifically
being deprecated.

PS: I've noticed that the TARGET attribute was not included in HTML
4.0 Strict, which means that environmentally conscious frame documents
(those that include TARGET="_top" when linking offsite) have to be
tagged as HTML 4.0 Transitional.  (Of course the frameset documents
themselves have to be HTML 4.0 Frameset.)  Do you happen to know if
this is an intentional feature?
