It's possible but only if you invert the relation between the frames and
the documents. If instead of making a frameset with the tree and the
document you could instead make the document inline the tree frame
inside the document page and hence the URL would always be direct (using
iframe tag). This might be contrary to one of the intrusion principles,
but it would solve the problem.
