NIR Dagan:

People with small monitors may prefer a no-frames website. 
They may very well want to see colors. These can be inserted in a frameset 
document validly only via stylesheets.

There is also an
interesting discusion on FRAMES in w3c-wai-ig (accessibility intereset group)
 about how visually impaired read or may read sites with frames. 
Many visually impared use "regular" browsers with a screen reader that 
translates it to speech. So NOFRAMES is not just a backward compatibility
feature.

Best,
Nir Dagan.
