[Pmwiki-users] [Suggestion] A container concept for pmwiki pages

I have been turning over a concept in my mind that I believe could extend
the possibilities of pmwiki. I have used the concept successfully in
website development. The concept is a container page. A "container" page
is made up of five sections (frames): top, left, center, right, bottom.
Each section can contain text, links, etc. (Actually, all the items that a
regular html frame could contain.) The borders (top, left, right, bottom)
can be sized with the center section adjusting to accommodate the change.
Final page layout is done by the browser.
I understand that some would discourage the use of frames, but I believe
that this might be an appropriate use. But, perhaps the same effect could
be achieved by using a table approach.
I have created a prototype setup of the concept as created by another
progrm I use. The site URL is: http://lm.3wplace.com/Prototype/PmWiki/
The site contains the following files:

index_r.txt 11-Jul-2003 20:47 1k index_t.htm
11-Jul-2003 21:04 1k index_t.txt 11-Jul-2003 20:47 1k
show-containerpage.html 11-Jul-2003 21:04 2k show-containerpage.txt

The .txt files contain the html code in a downloadable format.
To view the rendered concept click on show-containerpage.html.
I would be interested in knowing what others think of the usefulness of
such a concept and the feasibility of creating it within pmwiki. I don't
believe that anything like it exists in a wiki program.
I have some ideas about how the concept might work within pmwiki but I'll
hold those until others have had time to consider it and offer comments.
Of course, one of the considerations is now this concept relates to pmwiki
