Exactly.

Well, although I'm heavily using frames and framesets for the reason of your 
above-mentioned properties, my heart doesn't cling to these elements "per 
se". So if splitting and dynamic sizing became a CSS property, I'd be served 
with as well... (Yet basically this would re-invent what already exists.)

It's right as you say, I'd say...
