There are more options than ever before: stainless steel, high strength steel alloys that can be drawn super thin, shaped profiles, curved stays, etc. So at the end of the day a builder could offer frames with a wider array of characteristics than in days gone by. Not all of these possible features would be applied to every frame of course, that's where personal preference comes into play. At the end of the day though I think the new options could be exploited to build frames with features not possible in the 1990's.
