I agree. The attribute 'target' is reasonable also, when opening a
temporary window but keeping the main window background. 

In my mind IFRAME has not the same main problems as FRAMESET. IFRAME is in
fact an embedded object like using OBJECT element or APPLET. BUT this
matter seems not te be clear to members of W3C. They are OVERstrict.
