Hey there,

Thanks for your report and welcome to Trac!

Although the frameborder attribute is not supported by HTML5, browsers do still support it. For broader compatibility, the embed HTML being used by WordPress (see get_post_embed_html()) includes that attribute.

If we'd remove it, we certainly need to make sure there are no visual regressions.

Major browsers supports html5 now. I think we need to remove frameborder attribute from every place.
