You would have to contact Extensis to see if they would be interested in
developing a plug-in for Frame.  I don't know if there are enough users that
use both Frame and Suitcase to warrant the time. Obviously, they are the
only ones that can answer that.

One thing that Suitcase can do is to open up predetermined sets of fonts
when an application opens, so when Frame opens you can have certain fonts
activate. Not the same as per-document auto-activation, but it may help.
