"target" not in HTML 4.01 Strict DTD?

As the title says, I am curious why the "target" element of anchors or map areas
is not present in the HTML 4.01 strict DTD.  It is still the only element to
decide what frame a document is opened in, and the only way (short of scripting)
to force a link to open in a new window.  It is also not listed as depreciated
in the HTML 4.01 specification, nor has it migrated to CSS, which makes its
absense in the DTD strange.  A response on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for you time,
Ryan Armstrong
