There are some use cases where frame access is required. May be there 
are alternative ways to do this, but so far I have not came across one.

1. To figure out if the page load is complete. Top level document might 
be loaded, but documents from child frames might be still loading. This 
of course is with the assumption "document-loaded" is fired only when 
top level frame is loaded. If its fired after all child frames are 
loaded and then this is not a problem. Document does not state when 
exactly signal is fired specifically in relation with frames.

2. Executing javascript on frames. How do I execute javascript on a 
given frame?
