  Because this would have re-introduced one of
the reasons for removing frames, namely that a URL
cannot reflect the full state of a page - e.g. if
a search engine gives you a pointer to the contents
of the object, you will get the object without the 
container when you follow the link; similarly for
personal bookmarks (= IE Favorites).
