When you say, "huge downsides like security", can you be more specific in what you are referring to?

Hey Michael!! In terms of micro frontend maybe iframes don't expose big security problem as long as the same origin is preserved and the X-Frame-Options header is set. This mitigates attacks such as Clickjacking and XSS.
