I have been arguing this exact point about iFrames within the context of 
Sakai. At least by default, they're not necessary and should be phased 
out of the portal over time. This seems to be the general direction 
taken by the portal developers--Ian Boston and Chuck Severance have done 
some great work in this regard--and I'll continue to advocate for the 
removal of iFrames in Sakai at the upcoming project coordination meeting 
in Amsterdam.
