Frames are not part of HTML4 Strict. The existing HTML4 Frameset 
Standard will remain valid. AFAICS, unlike HTML4 Strict pages, you will 
be able to use valid HTML5 pages in HTML4 framesets, as the target 
attribute has been moved back into HTML5. So why do you insist in 
creating an HTML5 Frameset Standard?
