iframe dilemma: a compromise?

Having lagged behind in 3.x, we recently jumped to 3.25-1.  (Next step is
4.x, but that was a leeap too far at this point.)

One of the things that caught us was the new "Allow IFrame Tags" option.

Now I'll immediately confess to knowing absolutely nothing about the dark,
inner workings of anything vaguely iframe-ish.  And I'll also confess to
having failed to pay attention to its discussion here during recent weeks.

It seems the choice is currently a stark one: either permit iframe (and
risk its possible dangers) or forbid iframe (and risk the dangers of
unhappy users with big sticks).

Might there be the possibility of a compromise?  An option something like
"convert iframe to text"?  (Or was this discussed and deemed unworkable?)
