Richard, I'm not seeing what you're seeing.

That's a PDF of presentation slides from 2011 User Conf-- it lists
"frames" in the title and as a input to their process.

I read the document as a status update on their work, listing some
performance results from various data structures.

The "Conclusion and way forward" slide seems open ended.

In any event, is not relevant to any discussion here what the OTP team
is actually working on? Is this is a blip of interest in a decade old
proposal that has no shot of getting into the language?
