Agreed -- there's no reason it should be read-only.  Jumping to a bookmark 
doesn't normally cause the destination to be read-only, so there's no reason 
that should happen just because we're in a new frame.

(I haven't studied `pop-up-frames' enough to know whether Drew's 
back-of-the-envelope solution above is the best way, but presumably a little 
more research would lead to the best way.)

I don't have a strong opinion here, but my fingers also lean slightly toward 
"5" because of `C-x 5 b', for what it's worth.

Thanks for noticing that `view-buffer-other-frame' leads to read-onlyness, 
Drew, and for the "5" idea.
