Hmmm... usually when you use a frame, as you said, the navbar is in the frame
which stays permanently on the screen.  Then there is usually no need for a
navbar generation tool like wml::des::navbar. Because the navbar is pure
static and stays inside a _single_ page.  wml::des::navbar is for generating
navbars for _different_ pages where each page needs a slightly different
navbar. So I still don't see the point you address. What is your (syntactical
and semantical) wish for a frame support in wml::des::navbar?
