It is the same situation for other replaced objects like images and
objects. It is just agreed that it is incredibly stupid to try and
resize images at the client.

But resizing objects? That's a can of worms. There are examples similar
to the iframe there. You can easily have active content that needs to
run layout logic of its own (possibly using styles) there.

To give a specific example, a Flash movie that listens for Event.RESIZE
events and adjusts the internal layout.
