You are IMO making too many hidden assumptions about those, as yet
non-existing, future features, for example that there can be such a
thing as a "thread running on a frame".

To me, the most important objection to limiting a message to some
frame is that by the time the message is displayed that frame might no
longer be current/visible, and might not even exist.

I'd like to see the concurrency branch revived and actively developed
to maturity, before I develop appetite for that kind of food.
