One thing can't be done without frames:
The flash movie will not stay playing on top of the page while the rest of
the page reloads.
So it will restart in any case, even though you might skip some sequences.

And of course this is one thing frames are meant for: Reloading only
portions of the page while the rest stays in place.
Since using frames (and those "evil" tables) is not forbidden and even part
of XHTML compliance, why not use them when it makes sense?
