Good to hear from you.

Yes. When developing the 'frames' framework, it became clear that
different HTML coding would be needed in different settings.
Having the extra level of a wrapper was an easy way to avoid
duplicating large amounts of Perl coding, in which further development
might be needed anyway.

Having the wrapper allows post-processing of the (perhaps complicated)
arrangement of nested lists, to meet specific requirements.
Many other aspects of the document-structure are similarly wrapped.
Have a lok at the coding in frames.perl .
You will see that most of it is just minor variations of the wrappers,
calling up the _real_ subroutine (from latex2html) to do the real work.
All the best,
