Scott then also enumerates several good reasons. I would add another,
though it might seem esoteric to many.

If you're attempting, as we are, to follow the W3C's Web Accessibility
Initiative, then you should be creating a non-frame version of every
frameset for people who cannot use frames (and there are more reasons
than just old browsers). To me that seems to mean duplicate pages to
create and duplicate pages to maintain. Homey don't like to do the same
thing twice, and sometimes Homey forgets to update both pages (a bad thing).
