As a user --- my thought is that a "tab" should contain a frame.
i.e., it's kind of filling in for a gap left by crappy X11 window
Coordination with the GNU desktop project here might help.
For "switching buffer" use of tabs, per-emacs-window seems like it might be more useful, though obviously eating more screen real-estate. [With such a setup, it would be useful to have "non-tabbed" and "tabbed" emacs windows though I don't know how that UI would work...] -Miles
