Well, technically they are in "the spec", but they are also on the way
out of "the spec" considering it's deprecated in HTML 4.01.
And while normal frames seems to be returning with x-frames
the same is not true for <iframe>
There is a good alternative to <iframe> in the specs for most cases that
is valid strict 4.01, <object type="text/html"...>, but sadly browser
support for it is almost non exsistant.
Thus all things considered, <iframe> is probably the most crossbrowser
method to use clientside inclusions that exsists currently (all the big
ones handle it, even NS 4 if you nest a <layer> inside the <iframe>).
Thus it has it's uses, but if possible I would avoid it.
Software never has bugs. It just develops random features. =)
