I agree. Mouse-3 is a standard button for pop-up context menus nowadays.

Not true. Most modern applications use tiled windows inside a frame,
and open additional frames only optionally when specially requested
as Emacs already does.
Look at modern IDEs - they usually have a window with a class browser,
a window with class members, windows with source files; all in one frame.
Look at modern mailers - they have a window with folders, with messages;
all in one frame. Look at modern Web browsers - they have a window for
bookmarks, history, and Web pages arranged in tabs. Even M$ that for a
long time insisted on the concept "one page - one frame" now implemented
tabs in the latest IE.
