Note that "window.frames === window" and "parent.frames === parent". 
"frames" is just a synonym for "window". In fact you could write 
"frames.window.self.foo" and it would be precisely the same as 
"self.frames.window.foo" or any other combination: "self", "window", and 
"frames" are all just ways to refer to the self-same Window object.
