Frame does see fonts manually activated from Suitcase, that is not the issue. 
What I would like to resolve (but I guess with Frame it is not quite possible) 
is the auto-activation of the fonts used in specific products. I.e. I have 
multilingual production and different fonts are necessary to operate them - 
though they have the same names, they are using different maps (the first 
reason why I turned to Extensis, because good old ATM wouldn't cut it at all 
without removing fonts and putting new ones.) So in InDesign (as an example) 
Suitcase activates fonts based on the file I open - i.e. if I open Czech file - 
fonts from Czech folder get active. As I open Greek file - greek fonts get 
active and the Czech ones get de-activated because they have the same names. Do 
you follow?
