Mozilla don't see XFrames (w3c standard)
http://www.w3.org/TR/xframes/
a working draft, not a standard recommandation.
and the draft was first published a week ago.
This is not a bug. Changing severity.

Over to xml, sine the description reads:
"XFrames, an XML application for composing documents together, replacing HTML
Frames."

XFrames was revealed over a year ago.  It'd be really nice for this to be
implemented.

Note that XFrames is still a WD, not yet a CR. When a specification becomes CR
Mozilla can start implementing it.

Yes but Steven Pemberton tell that XFrames will not be change in CR (or PR or
REC) so I think that we can start implement this.

Then I suggest WONFTIX, per author of the XFrames document, since the current
draft is highly unstable.

From the spec:

# It is inappropriate to use W3C Working Drafts as reference material [...]

...so indeed, we shouldn't implement this until the spec is in CR.

Obviously, this is true for an implementation that is built by default, but I
think an experimental implementation that isn't built by default would be okay,
since I doubt XFrames is going to change a lot, and it'll just save the
developers work later.  Also, I believe some CSS3 properties were implemented
experimentally (with different names) before they reached CR status, although I
could be wrong.
XFrames is finished but is not in CR because they wait to XHTML 2.0 REC.
No longer blocks: xhtml2

The current "specification" is highly unclear on some things and has many open
issues. It's far from finished.
