You keep implying that frames make it possible to block bookmarking.
They do not.  Anyone can right click->open frame and then just
bookmark that page.

Frames do make it more difficult for the casual user to bookmark
things, but if you're relying on this for some sort of security,
you're being very naive in believing that *anything* client-side will
work.  You need to implement this protection server-side for it to be
reliable.  Frames are not the correct answer to this requirement.
