I like its genericness.  A more intrusive variant could be to ask the
user if an additional itemize environment should be added when inserting
a frame environment, just like we do for figure environments.  But since
I'm not convinced we are dealing with a common use case this variant
would be even worse.

Hm, perhaps my experience here is too limited.  No idea.
