Frames--What's the big deal?

Take a look at the following:
The URL will take you to the first page of a parallel text of Aeschylus'
Agamemnon -- the Greek in one frame, English in the other. The text is
part of the Perseus Project's digital library of ancient Greek authors.
I assume that because the frames tag currently has such limited support,
parallel text has not yet been made a standard feature in Perseus. To get
the effect, you need to type "alltext" into the URL.
Admittedly, this particular site is of interest to a fairly limited
audience, but I think it is an example of a pretty good (and obvious)
use of frames.
