[DJW:]  Most commercial sites that have ever thought about
this make it a condition of use that this is not done.  Also,
many sites, which don't use frames themselves, use a JavaScript
fragment to reload the frame at the top level if someone tries
to include it in a frameset - this results in security nags, and
if the script runs, often breaks the browser back button (although
location.replace may help in that respect).
