I think iframe is required simply by weight of use.  It seems like
most web-based advertising uses iframe now - huge examples are Google
AdSense and Amazon.

Back when HTML 4 was being put together, I suggested doing without
iframe and having object handle text/html.  It always seeemd to me
that iframe was really a specialized 'object'.  But now iframe is more
widespread than frames ever were.
