anyway what does the player frame have that the nameplate doesn't? a dropdown menu and your portrait texture?

just a pet project anyway, i don't think id ever do anything beyond questing with something so minimal
I issue i see, is that the nameplate itself is moving around the screen while an unitframe have static position. I doubt any healer would like to heal off name plates.
