You have not proven why "this use case [...] is best served by
framesets" either. Actually, framesets alone don't answer your
requirement, you have to add:
simulate a "single page application"
- a bit of something to "block bookmarking" (user cannot use right
click -> open this frame in a new tab/window); unless we don't have
the same definition for "no internal HTML bookmarking"
I say that your use case is best served by AJAX (à la Google Document
Reader, just without the history trick using the location's hash).
