No, it is transitional that still allows target - think about it, there
would be no point to allow target in frameset, because the link that
would include the target attribute would be in the webpage that was
loaded into the frameset and that webpage would not use the frameset

No, you CAN still open a page in a new window using HTML, its just that
that page won't validate. And who cares about that  ;-) 

For me its just another example of how the standards organisations are
giving ammunition to people who want to attack them, but don't get me
