Although I've never done it myself, I'm a little skeptical about the claim that SAS/AF frame entries cannot be used on a mainframe. Maybe I missed something somewhere, but I've never read it in the documentation or heard anyone from SAS say it. What I have heard and read would indicate the opposite. A quick search of the SAS notes at shows many FRAME entry notes that pertain to mainframe operating systems as well as others supported by SAS.

For mainframe AF applications you cannot use frames, and that's the part of AF that they teach nowadays. The original version 6 AF applications were text-based. That part is called "program entries" and thats' what you need to use to develop mainframe AF applications. It works just fine, and it is portable!
