Quickpoll: Frameset Design Elements in Lotus Notes Client Application UI Design

The response from both Twitter and the various other social networking sites prompted me to create a quick MicroPoll:
Now, understandably, this is a pretty wide-open alternative with Frameset vs. 'Web', but I have this idea...
Look at the more successful cloud service solutions out there today. You're presented with - in most cases - a 3-column fixed layout with highly-stylized UI interaction with various functional nodes. Navigation to top-sections is fairly basic, with in-content drill-down options to specific content or functional sections.
This should be fairly simple to re-create within a Lotus Notes Client application without the *[conventional] use of Frameset Design Elements.
* - Have to give myself an out if there comes a situation where I'll need to use a Frameset in some unconven tional ways.
And I know this won't be possible for every application-type within the Lotus Notes Client, as certain applications have certain user experience expectations... which begs the questions for those of you who might answer "We have a corporate standard UI": maybe that's a bad thing in some cases?
