You can't mix them within a Frame but provided you are operating
in different frames you can (and should!) choose whichever is most
appropriate for that Frame's structure.

Othewise you get into the trap of forcing everything to look like a 
or everything like a stack. (The "When all you have is a hammer,
everything looks like a nail" syndrome).
