Once upon a time Arnaud Le Hors shaped the electrons to say...

Right - not much of a difference and I don't see why OBJECT can't be given
the few things it needs to be a twin to IFRAME.  Then IFRAME can be deprecated.
And given:
1. OBJECT being able to load extenral content.
2. OBJECT as a link target.
3. OBJECT can be positioned with CSS-P.

You can replace frames completely with positioned OBJECTs.
