I'm sorry we have taken so long to get back to you. W3C is short
staffed and its hard to provide timely responses in every case.

Your feedback on the frames section of the document is most helpful
as we are currently preparing a revision to the HTML4.0 spec to
deal with a number of errata issues.

BTW The HTML 4.0 transitional dtd defines the noframes element as
having just the %attrs; attributes. the attributes for the frame and
frameset elements were chosen as ones that work with both IE and NS.
Both browsers support additional features beyond those defined in
HTML 4.0, albeit not in an interoperable way.
