Description

Originally tab layout was designed for use full screen inside dialogs, e.g.

We have much larger uses of the tab layout, such as special:preferences, where wrapping all the content in a frame may not be desirable, so we are seeing designs like https://wikimedia.invisionapp.com/share/NJOIMI9D6SX#/screens/330580747 which avoid the tabs altogether:

Do we want to enforce the same appearance for framed vs non-framed tab layouts, or do we want to support a different design for the latter?

Thanks for making this a task, I've already seen the SD layout some days ago. In my opinion we should support two appearances.
@Esanders do you see an issue with two apart from higher maintenance?
